Huawei has launched an international design competition to celebrate exciting designers and thinkers from all over. A prestigious panel of experts judged the entries: iconic graphic designer David Carson; Wang Ziyuan, a professor of design who was involved in the branding of the Beijing Olympics; Norito Shinmura, an award-winning Japanese designer whose clients include Muji and Shiseido; Tiger Pan, an eminent packaging designer; Liang Jun, chief UX design director at Huawei UCD; Zhang Zhongyang, president of the Shenzhen Illustration Association; and Liza Enebeis, director at Studio Dumbar. The theme of the contest was “Visionary Art.” The aim was to bring together the world’s foremost creative minds to explore the future of mobile aesthetics. Huawei wanted to investigate how to obtain commercial, aesthetic, and cultural value to over 170 countries and regions and more than 600 million Huawei users.
There were four categories, and I chose the hardest one (the prize was bigger) Mobile themes.
