Organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), DesignInspire Online takes place from December 3 to 9, showcasing global designs from Hong Kong, Mainland China, Japan, Korea, and Australia to both trade and public visitors. Under the theme “Design for Good”, this year’s DesignInspire aims to deliver positive energy to society through quality designs and innovations that can help overcome adversity amid the pandemic. A series of creative projects led by local designers and design groups will be on display including furniture and home gadgets that can brighten people’s stay at home; creative artworks about Hong Kong-style “staircase stores” found in old walk-up buildings and paintings on iron roller-shutter doors that demonstrate local culture and traditional craftsmanship; and ceramics and fiber art created by people in recovery and rehabilitation.
DesignInspire Online brings together nearly 30 interactive projects and games that integrate digital technology with creativity. These will present extraordinary visual, audio, and gaming experiences that can help to inspire a more creative outlook. The InnoTalk series, to be live-streamed via Zoom and YouTube, will be held over the course of the week-long fair period. Topics will cover industry-specific trends such as visual and short video marketing, enhancing the digital customer experience and engagement, as well as practical business tips for designers. There will also be a variety of workshops suitable for parents and children including handmade gift workshops. The materials required for the workshops will be mailed to participants after they go through a simple online registration process.
