Dear Sir, Madam With this letter I am applying for the Master of Art Program at the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK) in Visual Communication, in the program of Visual System. I hold a bachelor's degree from the School of Architecture and Design (SOA+D) from King Mongkutâ€™s University of Technology Thonburi, Thailand in the field of industrial design, where I learned design processes and creative thinking. It was a 5 year long program with many design integrated projects, not only among the group of students, but also working with local people and students from other fields. The core program was focused on Human-Centered Design, based on human behavior and social and cultural research. During my studies and through the different courses, I discovered my passion for graphic design and social as well as cultural design. This led me to my bachelor thesis in a social context which is about family relationship in a slum community. After graduation I started my first job in 2013 as a graphic designer. After 3 years of professional work in 2 advertising agencies and 1 year of working as a freelance graphic designer, especially in branding identity, I have gained a lot of experience in the field of commercial work that enabled me to bring fresh ideas that have real world use cases.

However, I realized that only working for clients does not always fulfill my passion. I was also looking for something to refresh my mind and creativity. That's why in parallel to my job I started working on a personal artistic project in 2015. The project is called Everyday Letters. It's a combination of calligraphy and lettering design to express myself in another form of art. The deeper and the more I got involved in the art of lettering, the more it showed me another side of the design world which is connected to typography and visual thinking. The long lasting history of typography and graphic design especially in Germany profoundly influenced me and my work. Just like the design works of contemporary German designers, such as Erik Spiegermann or Eike Kรถnig from HORT Berlin influenced me.
Graphic and communication design in Europe, especially in Germany, fascinate me and make me curious about how the ideas have been executed, merged with a unique visual style, dominant colors and beautiful typography.
This is the main reason why I decided to study in Germany as its design origins have been playing a big roll in the design world. I strongly believe that culture and language has a big influence in a logical way of thinking. That is why I moved to Berlin in September 2017 to be surrounded by its strong design and creative culture and also learn the language. Studying at UdK will enrich my horizon and creative thinking process and give me opportunities to unleash myself through several projects where I could freely explore and experiment with ideas and the advice and open discussions with experienced professors and classmates from different backgrounds. This is a big challenge for me. A challenge that I'm looking forward to. As UdK is one of the most well-known art and design universities in Germany, studying here will not only give me the knowledge, but also the connections to other ambitioned designers that could potentially lead to future projects. Another important reason of doing a master in visual system at UdK is that I would like to get the best available knowledge and tools from a great university in order to deliver it to the students in my home country. Because my goal is to one day be able to teach design to students in Thai universities. This opportunity will bring me closer to my goal.
To better explain my working background and skills, I have provided some work samples and CV in this portfolio. If you would like to see more works, please visit my website (www.supaksirin.com) Thank you very much for your time and consideration. Sincerely yours,

Everyday Letters is a personal project that I have started to publish my artistic expression through words, based on calligraphy and lettering design. In 2014 I started to learn everything by myself from scratch. And later I named the project â€œEveryday Lettersâ€?. The deeper and more I was getting involved in the aesthetic of handwriting, the more its history started to interest me and it became a big source of inspiration. Just like the understanding of type design fascinated me and later led me to some projects where I organized and hosted some workshops in Bangkok. In these workshops I shared my knowledge and the techniques I have learned through self study and through working on many different projects. These workshops were for individuals but also for university students. One of these workshops was held at Bangkok university as part of their course curriculum in communication design.

Moong Mahorasop A bed time story that creates a quality family time.
Moong-Mahorasop is my bachelor thesis project. It is based on a social and cultural topic in an effort to bring parents and children living in underprivileged Thai communities closer together. For the design I came up with a bedtime story D.I.Y kit that works under a mosquito net.
Type of work : Toy design, BA Thesis Advisor : Mrs. Nanthana Boonla-or Department : Industrial design Designer : Supaksirin Wongsilp Year : 2013
I started the project with a research in Thai slum communities, mainly with children. Disadvantaged children do not benefit from their place in society so I tried to find ways to strengthen the family bonds in these communities with my project.
My projectâ€™s goal was to enable kids to have more quality time with their hard working parents that are rarely at home. Kids in underprivileged communities become exposed to several obdurate, agitating experiences or stress that eventually leads to cognitive, social and emotional problems. 54
"Quality time" became the key concept according to the research which shows that most parents do not have time to take care of their children due to social and work responsibilities. Therefore, the design solution is embedded in user's overlapping routine which is the bedtime, the best period of time that both, kids and parents could participate and make meaningful moments that will last long in memories.
The diagram shows how the project was implemented through problems and solutions which resulted in 4 design criteria and led to design executions. A mosquito net is essential for every house in these underprivileged communities. That's why it was added as part of the design solution to use it in a unique way of narration, based on its space and physical functions.` 56

The final design was distributed to the communities through a social care organization, based in many underprivileged communities in Thailand, to be used as a learning tool in underprivileged communities nursery.
