Clement Mok Receives 2008 AIGA Medal

Clement Mok, lead design consultant and former chief creative officer at Sapient, has been awarded the 2008 AIGA Gold Medal. Awarded annually by the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), the professional association for design, the award recognizes those who have made exceptional contributions to the field of design and visual communication. Award winners were celebrated at the Design Legends Gala in New York City on September 18.

Mok is recognized as a digital pioneer within the interactive marketing industry, having received hundreds of awards from numerous professional organizations and publications over his career. Mok has also founded several successful design-related businesses including interactive agency Studio Archetype, which was acquired by Sapient in 1998.

Following the acquisition, Mok served as Sapient's chief creative officer where he helped establish and evolve the company's interactive practice. Prior to joining Sapient, Mok spent five years as the creative director at Apple, where he worked on the launch of the Macintosh. Currently Mok consults for a variety of companies, including Sapient, assisting on design planning and user experience projects while providing leadership and direction to further shape and propel Sapient's interactive practice.

The AIGA Medal is the highest honor of the graphic design profession and has been given to its distinguished practitioners, educators and role models since 1920. Its value accrues from its association with the professionals who have inspired us all with creativity, intelligence, perception and skill.
