dreaming away under full moon

As per chat on Sunday, life has been hectic.  Part of the reason for creating a number of designs with the theme of mooncake festival wato design a lesportsac weekwith the theme of HK.

Here is the creative statement:

Full moon and clear sky give a warm and touching feeling that calms you down and makes you feel loved (by friends, family or special someone).   Hong Kong is well known for the city of light with beautiful illuminating skyline at night.  Yet, no matter how

amazing the artificial and ambient light arrangement that one can create, that still give way to the spontanenous natural beauty of moonlight – which is like a big street lamp brightening life and the dark corners in the city. 

I’m particularly fond of the mid-autumn festival when friends and family get together and celebrate for the fullness of life as the full moon brings.  In the city of concrete forest, high-rises stretch skyline out into space where the moon appears even higher.  The design portraits the happiness of family and friends gathering under the full moon where most would go out, look up the sky and dream away.  In the culture of text messaging in Hong Kong, the facial expressions are playfully illustrated using font types and emoticons.

To family and friends…

mid-autumn - childhood memory

The initial idea of this blog was to capture the design works, progress and little and big things we observed and come across. In general, the focus is on design. Over time, there is a second thought. Regardless the nature of our work, be it design, art, science, music, etc, is the result and the synthesis of an individual or collective mind, experience, relationships, and finally knowledge. We are who we are primarily influenced by the people we relate to and interact with. It’d make sense to dedicate some time and space to the people whom we cherish for and everyday life we enjoy.

However, as we grew up, it’s hard to say every little things and thought to your friends and family due to lack of time, mental space, or physical distance even though technology such as email has made it much easier. Sometimes, it’s just easier to express; record it and let it be. Hope one day the letters will find its way to those that the letters belong to in this cyberspace.
