Aaron Nieh — Unveils Golden Pin Concept Design Award 2017 — Taipei, Taiwan
Already widely celebrated in Taiwan and pegged as one of the region’s rising stars, branding and
graphic designer Aaron Nieh has created a one-of-a-kind poster to help promote the 2017 call for
entries for the international Golden Pin Concept Design Award.
The poster features subtle references to the revolutionary work of artist Marcel Duchamp and industrial designer Philippe Starck, and targets new generation designers. Themed around the phrase, “In craziness lies genius,” Nieh encourages entrants to pursue original ideas that will influence the future direction of design. The off-center die-cut shape of the poster also reflects this idea.
Entries to the Golden Pin Concept Design Award are accepted in four categories: Product Design, Visual Communication Design, Packaging Design, and Spatial Design.
Submission Deadline: 28 June 2017
Preliminary selection: Early July 2017
