Established in 2011, Design China is a digital platform that documents the rapidly evolving field of design in China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. The website is both an online magazine and an archive, offering news and reviews on relevant exhibitions, talks and events, and original interviews conducted with both established and emerging designers linked to the region.
Former media partners include: Beijing Design Week, Design Shanghai, Asia Pacific Designers Federation, World Design Capital Taipei 2016, cadex 2016, World Architecture Festival/INSIDE 2014 and 100% Design London 2014. The project has been featured on platforms like It’s Nice That, Core77, Desktop and WGSN, amongst others.
