A request from a friend to draw a Pikachu. But I've decided to give it a lil' twist heh heh heh... this will be part of the upcoming "Bam! In The Childhood" series.
The Red Dot Concepts 2012 award ceremony was held on the evening of 19 Oct 2012 at the Red Dot Museum, where winners from various countries gather to celebrate their victory. As mentioned during the ceremony by Prof Dr Peter Zec, President of Red Dot Germany, only 6% of all the submitted designs (more than 3000) won a red dot design award this year, and all winning entries were being hand-picked by the board of jury which comprised of independent designers, design journalist and professors from all over the world.
I was there to represent my country and receive my award for one of my design which I did in 2011; Otter - Personal Disaster Pack (or some would know it as the Otter Pack).
The award was dominated by designers and design institution from China, Taiwan, and Korea; which made up approximately 95 - 98% of the winners. Although I am 1 of the only 3 Singaporeans that won this year, I felt proud to represent this little red dot when my country was being announced as it breaks the flow of the constant "xxx from CHINA!", "xxx from TAIWAN!", "xxx from KOREA!" (which went on for 4 hours). Looking at the amount of award winning designers groomed by these continental giants, I feel that we, local designers, need to buck up!
The online exhibition can be viewed at http://red-dot.sg/dconcept/portfolio/view.php?rid=223, or you can head down to the Red Dot Museum (Singapore) to view the winning entries which will be displayed for a year.

Not too long ago, I joined the ranks of Lasalle students who dominated the Crowbar Awards once again this year. I have been awarded with a Crowbar Awards - Silver for my graduation project, Omamori - Health Monitoring kit.
