About「DesignXcel」

「DesignXcel」is the first ever joint-school design exhibition in Hong Kong organised by the Design Council of Hong Kong, Federation of Hong Kong Industries. It is a yearlong project to foster collaboration opportunities between design graduates and leading entrepreneurs through innovation.

 

The title「DesignXcel」places its emphasis on the “X” within, referring to the crossover process to excel in design. The beauty of design lies in its encompassing nature: it does not only complement everything in life, but also penetrate into all walks of life. Moreover, the design collaboration corporations the opportunity to move up the “ladder of excellence”: where the two E’s meet is where a powerful array of design graduates and industrial leaders forms an alliance against established borders and business challenges. The pair of enclosing quotation marks embraces expressions of design, encouraging 「DesignXcel」 collaborators to make a statement of their bold ideas and works.

 

Among the 16 partnering design schools in Hong Kong, 250 out of about 4,000 full-time design graduates of 2017 will be selected by「DesignXcel」 to work with close to 50 companies of different industries. Spanning the five categories of Graphics, Advertising & Visual Communication, Product & Industrial, Fashion & Image, Digital & Interactive, Architecture, Interior, Spatial & Environmental designs, 「DesignXcel」 will showcase the collaboration stories and fruits of the fresh graduates and entrepreneurs.

關於設計列陣

《設計列陣》由香港工業總會和香港設計委員會主辦,是香港史上首個聯校設計展覽,透過全年度的創新協作機會促進設計畢業生與領先企業家之間的聯繫互動。

 

優越設計的精髓正蘊藏於本計劃的「X」之中—跨界創作。設計之美在其包容性:設計不僅能與萬物相輔相乘,同時亦滲透生活及各行各業之中。設計為企業提供了一個更上一層樓的機會:兩個「E」字相會之處,正是設計畢業生與領先企業攜手突破固有界限和面對業務挑戰的陣容。一對「引號」象徵協作伙伴去擁抱不同的表達方式,大膽演繹共同的想法和作品。

 

全港16間合作院校於2017年約有4,000名全日制設計畢業生,《設計列陣》將邀請250名學生與接近50間不同行業的公司合作。《設計列陣》涵蓋五大主要設計範疇:廣告及視覺傳播、產品及工業、時裝及形象,數碼與互動、建築、室內、空間及環境等設計,屆時將展出應屆畢業生與企業家之間的協作故事及其成品。
