On the occasion of Design Week in Milan 2013, NTNU National Taiwan Normal UniversityIn partnership with AliantedizioniPresents the public with a selection of international projects awarded students in international competitions known as iF Design, Red Dot, IDEA, G-Mark and others. It is young designers who are completing or have just completed the course of study of School of Design in the fields of Graphics, Product and Animation. Their projects will be presented in the form of two-dimensional posters that will welcome the public in a feast of colors and 'sparkling' images. Taiwan * is in fact today one of the fastest growing oriental economies and the vital energy that distinguishes the people of this archipelago off the coast of mainland China is reflected in the works proposed by a new generation of designers who intend to make their way into the of the world of international design.
The projects selected for this Milanese exhibition reflect the different approach of young Taiwanese towards advertising graphics: there are those who are able to effectively rework some fascinating signs belonging to the local tradition and those who instead tackle issues of social denunciation with determination, describing rough situations without compromise or aesthetic filters.
The result is often unsettling images that seem to have embraced the latest trends in international cinema. The animation works presented on display in video or as single printed frames also appear interesting. In them it seems to have been given ample vent to the free imagination with the construction of refined images that oscillate between a futuristic fable and the latest generation cartoons.
Regarding product design, young Taiwanese are sensitive to environmental issues and the recovery of local manufacturing techniques. In fact, their award-winning projects deal in an original way with issues such as the recycling of industrial materials or the adaptation to mass production of ancient techniques of transformation of natural materials such as, for example, that of Bamboo.
