British Council was celebrating 60 years of creating opportunities and connecting people in Nepal.
60 years ago, the British Council was established in Nepal with the first British library to build friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of Nepal and the UK. 60 years later, they have touched millions of lives through working with people and institutions from the education, language, skills, arts and youth sectors in Nepal, to build trust between the people of Nepal and the people of the UK.
British Council wanted to create a visually appealing timeline representing 60 years of their work in Nepal. The event was to focus on key individuals that have made significant contributions to Nepali society – some through civil society and services to the Government of Nepal, some in business and public institutions, especially universities, and some in the arts.
Kazi Studios was honored to be a part of British Council's 60-year celebration. We felt British Council and Kazi Studios shared similar values and goal and wanted to create something special for them. Each major event in the British Council in Nepal's history has been illustrated to form a larger dragon image, a symbol of longevity. The invitation card was laser cut to a Nepali window pattern, representing 'a window to their history'. A brief video of their timeline was animated to remember their contributions.
