July 28, Saturday afternoon, Renjie and Dan spoke at a design association for students and professional designers in Beijing. There were over 150 designers in attendance. There are several issues that the association is concerned about, including finding employment and getting prepared for a happy and worthwhile career in design. One focus that was very interesting is that many of these designers did not want to have a career copying other designer’s work. In other words, ‘how can we do original work when the ethos here in China is simply to copy existing design work?’ I was reminded of what many of my designer friends have told me, ‘you have to start with something you have a passion for, otherwise it feels like way too much work.’
Again, Renjie seem to do an excellent job relating to the audience with his talk. The audience was attentive and responsive when he delivered his presentation.
