A Matter of Experiences, not taking it for granted

The A Matter of Experiences Exhibition which was held at the SD Gallery for last two weeks, has concluded yesterday.

Exhibited were the works done by the year-one students of BA(Hons) in Design (Visual Communication) for the 10-week subject “Book and Publication”. The exhibits were the outcome of the first 5 weeks which covers bookmaking, toolbox or portfolio, A4/A3-size booklet and poster-booklet.

The aim of this first part of the subject is to enhance the students’ tangible experience of making a book/box with physical materials. It is a prelude, intended to strengthen their individual sensitivity for designing a book with special attention to texture, color, line, plane, form and space (printed/digital elements). Emphasis is placed on a conceptual understanding of a simple sheet of paper. This is essential for an in-depth understanding of how a sequence of papers relate to book design. Including texts and images, methods of cutting and folding, and considering time and space, all of which become the visible and the invisible elements of the works exhibited. The three assignments were to design an A4 and an A3 booklet and a poster-booklet which gives the students a practice for generating original printed publications, and for finding access to developing their own philosophy and concept for creating.

The exhibition was curated by Esther LIU, Associate Professor of School of Design.

COOP Project helps design interactive heritage tour in Sham Shui Po

Students from the Higher Diploma in Multimedia Design and Technology program helped making the Hulu Culture “i-Tour” Sham Shui Po interactive heritage tour happens.

The i-Tour is an interactive iPad application, part of the H.A.D. Walk (short for Heritage, Art and Design Walk) project organized by local NGO Hulu Culture with funding from the Hong Kong Jockey Club. Our students contributed, through the COOP Projects subject last year, to the design and development of video, interactive web content and various souvenir products for this meaningful activity.

For further details about the i-Tour project, which was just launched this week, please visit:
