The Golden Pin Design Award – an annual award administered by the Taiwan Design Center in Taipei that seeks to raise global awareness for design created for and within Chinese-speaking communities – announced its lineup for its 2015 Final Selection Jury on Wednesday. Four international design professionals and five Taiwanese designers, scholars, and business leaders make up the nine-member strong judging team. The jury will select, through an independent voting system, 15 to 20 Golden Pin Best of the Best Design Award winners from among this year’s 400+ Design Mark winners and Finalists. Influential Australian graphic designer Harry Williamson is the new face of the Golden Pin Final Selection Jury for the first time, who was also one of 10 finalists in the Taiwan’s International Invitational Tang Prize Medal Design Competition. Vivian Cheng, an internationally renowned product designer from Hong Kong, is another international member of the Best Design judging team. Cheng has served as International Liaison Manager in Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) before founding her own consultancy and product development company, Vivian Design, in 2014. The 2015 Final Selection Jury is chaired, for the second year in a row, by world-renowned Japanese product designer, Naoto Fukasawa, and the five Taiwanese jury members include Jung-Ya Hsieh, founder of GIXIA Group, THAT Inventions, and SquareX; Tony K.M. Chang, executive board member of International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID); Apex Pang-Soong Lin, honorary director of Taiwan Cultural and Creative Industry Association; Wang Hsin-Kong (David), founder of Hsin Kong Wang Design Company; and Wei Hsiung Chan, founder of Business Next Magazine. The Golden Pin Design Award is now in its 34th year, accepts product design, visual communication, packaging, and spatial design works from individuals and corporations anywhere in the world that are selling, manufacturing, or designing products for or in Chinese-speaking communities. Entered products and projects are assessed in three stages by an expert international jury. Second stage winners receive a Golden Pin Design Mark. Of these winners, just 15 to 20 receive a Best Design Award.
