Design x Taipei
[Event & Exhibition Poster]
Taiwan Poster Design Association, New Taipei City
Jianping He, hesign International GmbH, Berlin
The aim of the poster was to provoke reflections on the issue of design and the urban environment in Taiwan. Following the assumption that the look of a city basically depends on the prevailing ideology, a portrait of Chiang Kai-Shek, who was the long-standing political leader of the Republic of China, dominates the composition. The silhouette of the politician’s head is embedded in a dazzling array of Taiwanese advertisements. In their highly dense yet vivid design, they epitomise the hustle and bustle of an Asian metropolis.
