The concept of design encompasses shape and aesthetic. It can be a vital drive that is able to create opportunities and possibilities to people, it can unlock imagination, be stimulating, interactive and reflective. Its ongoing influence can travel through time with or without people’s awareness. Therefore we believe in design’s potential in injecting positive energy into the society, and that’s what we called impact.
The birth of Taiwan Designers’ Week (TWDW) derives from the observations and reflections of Taiwan’s industrial environment by the local designers. Over the years, TWDW has been growing with Taiwanese designers as we have also witnessed the change of the design environment. We hope to encourage the creative drives further which we believe that design has the potential to allows us to re-evaluate our lives. “Let’s Talk” about design to unlock more conversation between people, discover “Design & Beyond” its boundaries. “Share” good design with everyone and “Enjoy” what design can bring. While designers “Care” about people’s needs and “Wish” to provide solutions to problems, it will eventually become a positive “Flow” that can be “Around” us. What designers can do is “Unlimited” as constant “Exploration” is continued. All the inspirations, elements and resources will come together and bring the society with great “Impact”.
