Hong Kong Design Centre Presents "Open Page: The Art of the Creative Process"

2nd Exhibition of DESIGN SPECTRUM
Nearly 100 Titles from Asia Featured in Touchable Book Design Exhibition
Workshops and Forums to Unleash Imagination on Reading

HONG KONG, RIAUONE.com - 16 October 2019 - Design Spectrum, the new design initiative organised by Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC) with the sponsorship from Create Hong Kong (CreateHK) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR Government), is showcasing Asian design philosophy in four thematic exhibitions at 7 Mallory Street, a Grade II Historic Building in Wan Chai.

Approaching halfway through the quadripartite programme, the second exhibition entitled Open Page: The Art of the Creative Process is slated to welcome visitors in a cosy respite from the hustle and bustle, where an extraordinary reading experience unfurls in a new touchable book exhibition.

Experience Regional Design Cultures in 100+ Titles & Projects from Asia

From now till November 17 2019, "Open Page: The Art of the Creative Process" exhibition, curated by cross-disciplinary design practitioner and seasoned international exhibition curator Amy Chow, will display over 80 titles from across Asia, each one a creative feat in its own right.  'Book design is not just about the cover. It involves the designer as a conduit for the author's message, all the while in close collaboration with the publisher to elevate the reading experience and entice readers,' Amy comments.

As opposed to the usual book exhibitions, visitors can touch and leaf through the exhibits to soak up their beauty in a multisensory experience conjured by designers through use of colours, fonts, typography, formats and more. The exhibition puts into perspective the art of the creative process in book design and offers a new dimension to the pleasure of reading.

Exquisite examples on display include Hong Kong Old Shop II with an unconventional structure that binds together two books and a cover in different sizes. A Study on Hong Kong Beiwei Calligraphy & Type Design , on the other hand, is a 6-year research on the type design of Hong Kong. The book comes with a mini metal plate with the Chinese character '永' (eternal) etched on it to demonstrate the intense and powerful brushstroke of the Hong Kong Beiwei font.

In addition, visitors can also explore Asia's design scene through more than 500 design magazines from different countries and regions, alongside examples of space, product or font design for reading. Rare exhibits such as Indian and Malaysian works offer a full-spectrum examination on Asian creative cultures, which transcends geographical, disciplinary and age boundaries.(roc/red/*) #for information on collaboration publications, questions and other e-mails riauonemedia@gmail.com
