Restoring Malaysia’s Independence Day Anniversary Celebration Logo 2012/2013
In his capacity as President of the Graphic Design Association of Malaysia, wREGA, Zachary Haris Ong demanded the government to withdraw the very unpopular independence day logo released for the year 2012. Upon meeting with the relevant ministry, the government was made aware the power and gravity of communication design for the country and agreed to withdraw the logo. Subsequently, he assisted the government to ensure that the process abides by local and international codes for design competitions. With the assistance from wREGA Past President William Harald-Wong, the final winning entry was chosen through a comprehensive logo competition in 2013 that adhered all codes and proper practices.
