Competition: we've teamed up with British designer Michael Young to give away five signed copies of his new book that chronicles his time working in China.
The hardback book contains images from Young's projects and experiences since moving to Asia almost 20 years ago, as well as text on his evolution as a designer written by academic John Heskett and a foreword by Young himself.
Works in China highlights five key projects and includes interviews conducted by Heskett with client CEOs, Young's design team and external consultants.
This competition is now closed. Five winners will be selected at random and notified by email. Winners’ names will be published in a future edition of our Dezeenmail newsletter and at the bottom of this page. Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country.
The publication coincides with an exhibition of the designers's work, on show at The Space in Hong Kong until 17 July.
Here's some more information from Young:
Michael Young Studio and Friends of HKDC are pleased to announce a gathering featuring Michael Young and his new book - works in China.
MichaeL Young Comments:
When I arrived in Asia I decided to record some of the important moments and meetings with new clients, I did not know the reason why, I just felt it important to collect the data since the impact the local environment was having on my creative process’ was immeasurable.
After a chance meeting with academic John Heskett in 2010, it was obvious we were working in parallel - studying how design could impact on the economic growth of brands. I never saw reason to make a classic design book for the coffee table, I wanted to make a useful tool and whilst the contents of this book are not a guide to working in China they will certainly demystify the process. After almost 20 years my first book “works in China”.
