Taipei, Feb. 24 (CNA) A book that records the design competition for the
Tang Prize medal and certificate, titled “Chasing the Pearl,” has won the 2015 Golden Pin Award in the Visual Communication category.
The book is a collection of 10 works by international designers and 15 award certificate designs by Taiwanese artists.
Its title, “Chasing the Pearl” (良圓) comes from a design by Naoto Fukasawa, who won the competition for the design of the Tang Prize medal.
“Chasing the Pearl” originates from a traditional Chinese concept of a dragon chasing the pearl of infinite knowledge — as shown in Fukasawa’s spiraling design.
The Golden Pin award is expected to further promote the Tang Prize, which was inaugurated in 2014. [FULL STORY]
