Lecturer Section Preface
Alas, ten years! Design Summer is already ten years old. When the Chinese sigh with the passage of time, they prefer to say “In an Instant of a Decade”, which stems from Buddhist conceptions of time, using a snapping moment to describe a decade as extremely short. However, the physical sense of the decade is as specific as 3650 days, 87600 hours and 315360000 seconds. I’d like to consider this decade as a free and concrete definition. I can really feel the changes that the design has brought to me over the past 10 years as DS has almost become the memory of my entire work. In addition, I’d also sigh for the passing of time by tasting the concentrated memories of those ten years.
Around me, most of my friends wonder, “It’s not easy to persist for ten years, is it?” The word “persistence” seems to be full of hardships and bitterness. In fact, the annual DS has little difficulty in memory, at least for now it doe传奇私服不开门s not leave any clear image. On the contrary, there is much of happiness. Perhaps “happiness” is the genuine reason for the continuation of DS as a great design should also be happy and healthy.
DS has inadvertently witnessed the ten years of the city’s construction in Hangzhou. In 2008, when Hesign Hangzhou moved to Phoenix Creative Park, there were only three or four companies with a dozen of employees in the par传奇私服1.76发布网k. There are now more than 500 companies and thousands of workers. The park, used to be surrounded by mountains and fog, has been gradually emerged into the concrete jungle.
Once again, all the designers who have supported DS for years are much appreciated regardless of countries or cities, we all met on one summer in Hangzhou, and the memory was so fresh.

Student Section Preface
I was always questioned as a guest professor of design at university, “How do you think design should be taught?” My answer is often surprising: “The best way to design study is self-learning.” Such questions and answers, if they are drawn from the context of dialogue, are often sensationalistic. In fact, China’s education of graphic design is relatively imprisoned. A large class of more than 20 students has a compulsory course every semester for the whole class. Although each course has been taught, leaving no possibility for further study. Even if you dislike the course, you must also complete the appropriate amount of homework, and get compulsory credits as well. The合击传奇私服网站 joys of design are deprived of dryness and responsibility. The so-called “self-learning” is only relative to such a learning system. Since “self-learning”, people will find professions that are more interested in, and be willing to increase the resistance to difficulties for our own interests. My ideal university of design is like an organic supermarket. The related design courses are those different commodities with diverse attributes, each with its own nutrition and connotation. Students, like customers, should come to choose their own tastes and nutrition. Of course, you still need requirement concerning a bit of nutrition, ingredients, seasonal foods, and winter tonics, full of fun and enjoyment.
I could not change the education system, so I came up with the idea of opening the “Design Summer” mini-project. It’s already been ten years. Every year, the growing number of DS students is also reminding me of the problems in the education of Chinese universities of design. I do not want to speak out loud and ask the Ministry of Education to change this issue, which is not conducive to my DS’s development. However, I still hope to raise the design capabilities of some enthusiasts who are interested in designing within a small area. There is no magic weapon, just because DS is willing to motivate the original points of interest hidden in the students, and then change their “university-unified” approach in thinking about design. And these works presented to you are the proof.
Time flies! Thanks again for the support of the students, especially those from many students over the years and all the designers who have supported DS for years are much appreciated regardless of countries or cities, we all met on one summer in Hangzhou, and the memory was so fresh. Encouragement is sometimes the power of creation.
