「DesignXcel」2018 - Collaboration Programme for Emerging Young Design Talents

The 「DesignXcel」2018 will faithfully extend the collaborative brand spirit from 2017. Design Council of Hong Kong, established by the Federation of Hong Kong Industries, will carry forward the programme comprising a three-day exhibition at DesignInspire 2018 in Hong Kong, two mini-exhibitions in Guangzhou and Macau, a digital directory to list the emerging local design talents, and a publication to storytelling the beauties of collaboration. 「DesignXcel」 sets out to act as the perpetual intermediate platform to link the industrial sectors with emerging designers for co-creation projects. It takes further to highlight the capability of Hong Kong to line up sophisticated collaborations between design talents, and the industrial entrepreneurs on the economic level. The partnership will provide practical mutual support for the partners in the areas of industry expertise, technical advice, material supply, design concepts and innovations, offering a space for designers and companies to take opportunities. A cluster of collaborative cases with added values will also pack with various design-related activities such as mini-exhibitions, conference, workshops/seminars and guided tours. It holistically upgrades the international image of design in Hong Kong and promotes the unique brand of “Designed by Hong Kong”.

Over 10 partnering local design schools, around 100 out of above 4,000  design graduates each year during 2015-18 are nominated to work with around 50 companies from industries such as Graphics, Advertising & Visual Communication, Product & Industrial, Fashion & Image, Digital & Interactive, Architecture, Interior, Spatial & Environmental designs. The「DesignXcel」2018 exhibition will be held from 6 – 8 December 2018 at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and will bring the fruits of the collaborations to life.
