China Post #6 - A One Show China Grad

By Joe Duffy Dec 6, 2006

He was far and away the best student in my Beijing workshop in 2003 and now his work just keeps getting better. Wang Yuwei, or WZL as he refers to himself, is a young designer working his way up in the emerging Beijing design scene.

When WZL graduated, just a few short years ago, his innovative work was about as welcome in China as graffiti on The Great Wall. A lot has changed in that short time.

As global brands clamor for the Chinese audiences attention, local marketing directors are realizing that innovative creativity is the missing ingredient. Young creative pioneers like WZL are in the right place at the right time. Those that stick to their guns and refuse to compromise the integrity of their work will make a difference in the culture as well as in their careers. Wang's currently doing some great design for Nike, HP and many Chinese brands.

Kudos to The One Club for helping to make this happen and staying with the program for the last 6 tough years despite limited sponsorship.

Surely there must be some more potential patron companies out there who would like to hitch their Chinese star to the rising tide of creativity in The People’s Republic of China? Hello…

Contact Mary Warlick or Kevin Swanepoel at www.oneclub.org for more information. They approved this message.

And, check out “the WZL’s” work attached to see what a lot of natural talent mixed with a little inspiration can do.

 

What others think:

  • 方舟之結局應該是源自bible 吧 同day after tomorrow 有點像 都是說bible/Christianity 是western catoliziviin 之祖 只不過這只方舟is made in china,可以說是人定勝天 應該是這個意思 沒有其他吧 但我也喜歡made in china 這個idea, 應該是在說中國才是世界生產之首吧.

  • 不過咁喎 要清楚不同國度人民角色 其實在超過一年前 美加等地 high school 是已把普通話作為第三外語課程選擇 這是事實 不過 是從 鬼仔 角度 學普通話是基於日後可從西方國家進軍中國 包括商貿機會 因此要從早要學習普通話 ( 可選擇 ) 而另一方面 鬼仔世界當中 英文本身已不是外語 是他們的母語 所以鬼仔學普通話 是可以理解 因看到中國起飛 情況就如中國人學英語及其他外語 以便打出中國 道理一樣 然而 以香港人為例 學英語是對就業和升學都有相當幫助 這又是事實 因為英語能力佳 可進職跨國公司 而跨國公司要進軍大陸 國內大企業 才俊們也不是只懂國語 隨時留學回祖國 英語也佔重要地位 現階段 中國因經濟起飛 部份外國人學國語是理解的 而香港人有英語能力 也是單靠懂普通話優勝 問題是 入職註港中國大企業 這些國產大公司也要求員工懂英語 要說國語 反正企業內已多的是 多一個不多
