Comprising five annual awards including the Design for Asia (DFA) Award, the Design for Asia Student Award (DFASA), the Design Leadership Award (DLA), the World's Outstanding Chinese Designer (WOCD) Award, and the Hong Kong Young Design Talent Awards (HKYDTA), the awards also include 9 Grand Awards; 3 Special Awards for Culture, Sustainability and Technology respectively; 9 Gold Awards; 16 Silver Awards; 23 Bronze Awards and 48 Merit Awards.
Nanyang Technological University congratulates Asst Prof Cindy Wang I-Hsuan, School of Art, Design & Media on being awarded the 2010 Design For Asia (HK) Communication Design Gold for her book “Visual Circus”. Highly innovative, “Visual Circus” is an unusual work that visually communicates through illusions. It directs readers to think and glean more from the text than first meets the eye.
