Understanding the Tepak Sirih
Malay Weddings
In the face of globalisation, a fast expanding economic growth and rapid urban development
facing an increasingly media-savvy society, many aspects of our culture, from language, customs to stories and crafts, have undergone tremendous change and modifications. There is a need to design for cultural preservation.  

The objective of this project is to bring the focus to Tepak Sirih which often regarded as an insignificant object  and is a dying tradition in Malay weddings. Hence, these two posters were made to create awareness of the significance and the symbolic meanings of the ingredients used in tepak.
