©REATIVE©ITIES Survey: Mapping creativity in the Asia-Pacific today
In conjunction with the Kaohsiung Design Festival and the Asia Pacific Cities Summit in Taiwan, The Creative Cities exhibition, designed and curated by Jackson Tan & Justin Zhuang, charts the networks, trends and ideas that define global creativity today through the people, projects, places and platforms in cities around the world.
Each of the 10 cities — Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Kaohsiung, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo — is mapped using the thoughts and works of 50 local creatives who are nominated by their peers as the leaders shaping their city’s creative and cultural landscape.
Our creative director, Jason Little, was chosen as one of the representatives for Sydney, with exhibited works including the recent Optus brand identity, the multi-award-winning identity for the City of Melbourne, and several posters for the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA).
The Creative Cities project distills the distinctive themes, capabilities and geographies of each creative city. It also plots out the networks between them, including projects, formal alliances and informal influences, so as to create a contemporary survey of how Asia Pacific is developing as a culminated creative region together.
The exhibition opened in November 2013 and closes late January.
