Record design is a unique part of Taiwan’s vibrant design culture. Whilst the music industry continues to fight an uphill battle against streaming and downloads, Taiwan has been able to ensure the continued survival of the physical format by persisting in the creation of innovative visuals and packaging. Record design reflects the experimental spirit of Taiwanese designers and the vast potential of printing and manufacturing technology; it’s no surprise that Taiwan has earned the reputation as the producer of the most adventurous and high-quality album packaging location throughout Asia. Through this field of contemporary design, the rest of the world can see the charm of Taiwan’s contemporary design industry. Visiting Europe for the first time, this exhibition brings the works of five renowned Taiwanese graphic designers to the London Design Festival: Aaron Nieh (聶永真), Joe Fang (方序中), Godkidlla (廖小子), Blackzao (布雷克), and Po-Chun Yen (顏伯駿). Audio and visual facilities will accompany the exhibition, allowing for an immersive record store-like experience. Curated by Lin Wei Jhe 林唯哲 Supported by the Ministry of Culture, Taiwan.
