6/9 Tiis Ganda

September 2018
Tiis Ganda is a Filipino saying that means “too suffer for beauty” or “beauty through pain.” In this case, Tiis Ganda is the title of a publication that parallels Euro-centric Filipino beauty standards with Western criteria for graphic design. The result is a narrative that celebrates a different kind of beauty.
