It also brought home BRONZE in Design with “Baybayan” for the Cultural Center of the Philippines, combining pre-colonial Baybayin scripts with the modern alphabet in an intricate typeface whose origins tie deeply into Philippine heritage.

Havas Media Ortega was also granted a BRONZE in the Media category with “Project Save” for the Government of Valenzuela City, a life-saving campaign that makes use of establishments’ roofing as a raft in case of flood.
