It’s considered as investment to devote in design. By participating in CGD taken as an evaluation and test for our products and communicating with the jury face to face, we realized the demerits of our products and points to be improved, shared Mr Ke.

Mr Lin, as one of the first industrial designers and graduated from The Art and Design College Xiamen Lenovo1 , Fuzhou University, had been confusing with the design environment in Xiamen. But he turned positive very soon when knowing that Red Dot headquarters in China was based in Xiamen and responsible for operation of CGD.

Mr Lin encouraged enterprises and designers to participate in design competitions. CGD upholds strict international judging criteria, which will turn out to be a driver for enterprises to make high-quality products, for designers to pursue supreme design to achieve success in the market, he reckoned.
