Innovation and Leadership, are the most significant factors for the future development of societies. Under the banner “Innovative Leadership x iSee Future”, the iSee Taiwan Foundation and the Sayling Wen Cultural and Educational Foundation are again jointly sponsoring the Taiwan International Student Design Competition (TISDC) this year as well as organizing the TISDC-affiliated Global Talent Design Festival (GTDF). In addition to inviting leading international design professionals to Taiwan for discussions, the 2017 TISDC will welcome representatives from 21 national design organizations in the United States, France, Germany, Japan, and other countries across 5 continents to Taiwan to establish a mutual solidarity and a global platform for design-related cooperation and knowledge-sharing. The GTDF is increasingly a global stage for promoting top design talents both from Taiwan and elsewhere, in addition to “passing the torch” of design innovation to a new generation of talented, ambitious young professionals. No wonder it is being heralded as this year’s “grand gathering” of the design world.
Continued sponsorship of the TISDC by the iSee Taiwan Foundation and the Sayling Wen Cultural and Educational Foundation has made this year’s event bigger and better than ever. TISDC has accepted 18,932 entries from 910 departments and institutes of design in 71 countries and regions worldwide. All will compete for the NT$4.8 million in total cash prizes on offer. The GTDF will subsequently keep the momentum going in late November with a series of activities held under the theme “Innovative Leadership x iSee Future”.
Innovative Leadership – Top Global Design Professionals Converge on Taiwan, Set Sights on Exciting New Possibilities
Hoping to further boost Taiwan’s influence on the global design stage, the two sponsor foundations, which have long promoted local culture and substantive talent-training initiatives in Taiwan, have planned a series of constructive activities for this year’s Global Talent Design Festival under the banner “Innovative Leadership x iSee Future”. To kick things off, a set of “Innovative Leadership” events opened in October, with 21 global design organization representatives invited to central Taiwan to join several of the country’s leading design professionals in a specially tailored cultural tour and “industry meetup”. Topics addressed included how to effectively use design as an engine for upgrading domestic industry and quality of life and how to leverage cultural diversity and intergenerational sharing to create new and innovative approaches to design and, ultimately, to pass the torch of design excellence to future generations.
GTDF Main Event – Registration to Open Soon for the 11/26 Global Design Leadership Forum
The Global Design Leadership Forum, the main event of this year’s GTDF, will take place on November 26th, when top design professionals will take the stage to share their ideas on innovative leadership, their own leadership roles in the design industry, and their thoughts about the rising importance of “exquisite lifestyle” trends. The regional adviser of ICSID and GK Design Group CEO Kazuo Tanaka and former ICSID President and current CEO of Good Design Australia Dr. Brandon Gien are expected to make a rare appearance onstage together to share their respectively rich perspectives on the philosophy of good design, cultural creativity, and trends in aesthetic design. Online registration for the Design Leaders Forum will be opening soon!
