Most of you who have read my articles understand why it is important to expand and constantly challenge yourself to learn new concepts and ideas. A couple weeks ago I published an article, “Four Steps to Reinvent Yourself by Drawing Cars!.” If you did not catch it, check it out here!
That being said, the first step talks about acquiring knowledge. Reading other blogs that have a different perspective about design always helps you to re-interpret and see ideas in a different light….which may help you to “connect the dots” for your future ideas.
Waikit Chung, founder of the popular product design blog , www.productdesignhub.com, has just launched his new site, www.chinadesignhub.com. Before getting into his new website however, I briefly wanted to discuss the contents of product design hub. What I find particularly compelling about Waikit’s style is his passion to educate the design community about processes related to executing products. Waikit has several professionals and students that write about their experiences when working with companies developing products. This is an invaluable resource for students considering a career in product design or for current students that look for guidance for their career path.
Product design hub is rich with several resources that delve into topics like design process, design insights, advice, designer interviews, and plenty more. However, the world has drastically changed and we are truly submerged in a global competitive market where countries like China, India, and others are “hungry” to prove that they can also be creative and innovate. Despite what some of us might think about certain countries and capabilities, Waikit created www.chinadesignhub.com to show the design community that our Chinese counterparts in the design field can also innovate and be creative thinkers.
Spin Ceramics, for example, creates these beautifully elegant and timeless ceramic pieces that represents their understanding of creating designs that reflect the beauty of their heritage. The shapes are so simple and pure. Be sure to check out the blog post on this particular item here http://chinadesignhub.com/2012/03/spin-ceramics/.
Like the ceramic products above, there are several posts that showcase China’s talent in the design field. Cruise over to www.chinadesignhub.com and spend some time checking out some of their products. You may also check out Waikit’s blog and product design work here:
Once again, I would like to thank Waikit for bringing awareness to the talent that exists across the globe.
