Ball CheungChairman's Statement, IDSHK
The design industry in Hong Kong, like the general public, was affected by the pandemic in the past three years. However, the designers have never stopped. They continue to collaborate with premium brands to make a breakthrough. IDSHK sincerely thanks the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government for sponsoring the 1st and 2nd editions of the ReMIX program under the scheme “Create Hong Kong”, and is grateful for the support from local premium brands and assessment panellists. We thank designers from different fields who make the ReMIX brand and designer matching program a huge success.
As the youngest chairman of IDSHK, I will walk together with the mentors, old and new friends alike in the industry and collaborate with peers from various sectors dedicated to promoting the professional creative industry in Hong Kong. I hope that in the future, when people think of high-quality products, they will envision more outstanding Hong Kong designs.
We are now launching the 3rd edition of ReMIX and will continue to connect Hong Kong designers with premium brands. By nourishing the creative industry and exploring different aspects of brands, we can bring the persistent spirit of Hong Kong to the world.
