Six design works by students of ECNU School of Design won Red Dot awards of the year 2016, the best performance of the school since it started to vie for the “Academy Awards” in the international design community.
Three of the desins are made by visual communication majors. Among them is a Chinese font design, for which its designers have reason to be specially pleased because in Red Dot’s history Japanese and Korean font designs have dominated the Oriental font design award for years.
The spectacular achievements derive from increasing vigor released by a comprehensive educational reform carried out by the school that characterizes talent training.
Instructing teachers of the award-winners include Chen Wenhao, Chen Jinming, Dai Yunting, Lu Junshi and Liu Fei. Chen Wenhao with the Department of Visual Communication instructed the font design works.
