"Mark X" International Poster Show , 2003
( received 2003.04.18 from Miss Huang )
School of Design of Southern Yangtze University
X-POWER DESIGN FESTIVAL 2003
The meaning of the mark X
It is a totem representing the unknown, denoting the rebellious spirit.
The unknown is like the other shore for the boat of creativity.
Only by taking a new perspective can one peek at the future.
Space & time, the East & the West, the tradition & the avant garde, art & science, culture & commerce… all the ideas converge at the crossing point of the mart X, seeking the new power to explore the unknown. In the golden October 2003, the design school of the Southern Yangtze University will hold an “X Power” Design Festival. Elites of the international design circle will flock together to arouse and release the power that will push forward the design cause, and to anticipate the brilliant future of the world’s visual design.
