For WDC 2016, Taipei has invited 10 iconic Taiwanese designers from different fields, including graphic design, branding, product design, architecture, and public art, to act as WDC Taipei 2016 Design Ambassadors. The designers-Wang Zhi-Hong, Milly, Akibo Lee, Alain Lee, Biaugust (Owen Chuang and Cloud Lu), Leslie Chan, Jun-Liang Chen, Andrew Wong, Aaron Nieh and Shu-Chang Kung-are participating in the visual design of WDC 2016. From their 10 designs, you can see the different styles and characteristics of the designers, and their interpretations of Taipei. In the future, their designs will be applied to all kinds of promotion materials to create a variety of visual impressions and to attract the attention of people around the world. The Design Ambassadors will add more innovative energy and sparkle to World Design Capital Taipei 2016.
Taipei has been selected as the 2016 World Design Capital (WDC). This doesn’t come by surprise, as back in August they were the only city selected by International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID) to move onto the competition’s final round.
