|Title of Design: Show‧Big
Designer: Lai Pui Yan
Children are our future, and they are the mirror of us --- adults, as well.
Adults are reminiscent of the old times when we were kids, when we were curious of everything, when we see the world in a way as simple as it could be.
In those days, people used a magnifying glass to access the unknown world. Kids used it observe insects. And old men used it to read newspapers.
The design of “SHOW BIG” is out of the simple idea that we may remind ourselves of the curiosity, and the desire for knowledge we used to have. Still, the world nowadays is big, if not bigger; while “SHOW BIG” is to let one discover the fun around better and easier.
The world is beautiful, as it’s always be, when you see it with a pure heart.
|Title of Design: Roadster
Designer: Wong Ming Sum
We all live like driving on an expressway. Sometimes, we may fear for uncertainty in future. ‘Roadster’ represents an attitude of advancing bravely. We would never stop in the day. When the dark comes, we turn on the headlight to speed forward. When we see a crossroad, we make a breakthrough. No one can see the future. Only the one with a good driving attitude can.
|Title of Design: AIR-MODE
Designer: Chan Yuk Ting
Due to the rapid development of cities and industrial areas, our air quality is getting worse and worse. Air-mode is to remind us to be more aware of air pollution. Elements representing machine structure and gas-mask have been used as the main design concept. Since motorbike drivers are the main sufferers from the harmful air pollution, the goggle- shaped Air-mode is designed to protect them from heavy industrial pollution.
