Teacher’s Insights: PSID Celebrates Golden Anniversary with Graduation Exhibit

Five decades of excellence in Interior Design education, and still, the Philippine School of Interior Design continuously soars and remains to be the undisputed premiere school for Interior Design. In its 50 years, the school has produced some of the finest interior designers in the industry and students who continuously top the board exams every year. This illustrious past meets the future movers and shakers of the design world as PSID mounts “GOLD: Glamorous, Opulent, and Luxurious Designs”, a graduation exhibit slated on October 1-31 at Uptown Bonifacio Mall in Bonifacio Global City.

As the school celebrates its golden anniversary, GOLD will showcase luxurious and glamorous designs that also celebrate comfort, functionality, opulence, and cost efficiency.

Booth No. 3: “Balinese Kitchen”.

Co-presented by Megaworld, and mounted in cooperation with Boysen, Schema, Shell Canvas, La Europa, Designery, Daikin, and Tecson Flowers, the exhibit is set to showcase an array of 24 exquisitely-designed exhibits that highlight the trends of the decades in which the school has offered design students quality training mixed with the aesthetic of luxury, opulence, and glamour.

Booth No. 4: “Modern Deconstructivism” Study Room

For the first time in PSID’s history of graduation exhibits, the school’s students, alumni, and faculty have joined forces and showcase their brightest design ideas for GOLD. The exhibit will be divided into three galleries.


Booth No. 6: “Contemporary Neoclassic” Dining Room

The Students Gallery will exhibit interiors conceptualized and constructed by the 72 pupils of PSID Advanced Class of 2017, as well as students from the PSID-AHLEN Institute. The graduating students will showcase design concepts that capture the essence of luxury, opulence, and glamour as finishes and materials take center stage to elicit an ambiance that caters to sophistication and sense of style.


Booth No. 11: “Eclectic Elegance” Bedroom

Meanwhile, the Alumni Gallery is a “blast from the past” of sorts with already established PSID alumni such as Chitz Legaspi and Lalyn Nivera participating again in a graduation exhibit. It is a way for the alumni to relive the challenges and experiences of creating a booth for the graduation exhibit and apply what they have learned, both from the school and in the practice to evoke a sense of nostalgia.

Booth No. 13: Michael Pizzaro “Bedroom”

Also a first for the PSID exhibit is the Faculty Gallery. Select professors and instructors of the PSID, namely Michael Pizarro, Mark Perez and Vianca Anonuevo, Gino and Karen Abrera, Jigs Adefuin, Mary Anne Bulanadi, and Chat Fores will also showcase their works to help commemorate the school’s anniversary. Pitted side-by-side with the works of PSID students both past and present, the Faculty Gallery will be a testament to PSID’s elite design training.

Booth No. 15: Mary Ann Bulanadi “Den/Study Room”
Booth No. 20: Jigs Adefuin “Living Room”

Christian Matters: Victory Worship released new single “For Your Purpose”

We,Filipinos do know how to make beautiful songs. And not only that, we know how to make it meaningful and epic. Just like this Filipino worship band, “Victory Worship” has released their new song that will definitely define “missional worship” more and hope to create more impact to the hearts of people.  


On the heels of UNASHAMED, the Every Nation Campus 2017 Conference, they launched the song “For Your Purpose” as part of their crown initiative to reach out more people to the Gospel of Jesus Christ through their worship songs that is relevant and heartfelt. 

Inspired by the Bible verse in Jeremiah 1:5, which says,

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

“For Your Purpose” is Victory Worship’s third digital single for 2017, following the Filipino-language song “Awit ng Bayan” and the worship ballad, “Safe.”

Written by Victory group member Lee Brown with Every Nation songwriters Sarah Bulahan, Erika Murrell, and Jose Villanueva III (also known as Quest), this inspiring uptempo praise anthem positions worshipers’ hearts to living out God’s purposes in their lives. “For Your Purpose” encourages believers to stay secure in their identity in Jesus, reminding them that God knows who we are and loves us most.

With this new song, I believe that more than just giving us good song to hear, it will compel more people to grow more with their relationship with God. And since the outcry of their worship band is “Missional Worship,” this song will encourage you to indeed live according to the purpose that God sets on you.
