CRE8 holds bicycle design workshop for iF – Design Talents23-Nov-2012
Following his appointment as a juror at the IBDC - International Bicycle Design Competition, CRE8 DESIGN’s Georg Todtenbier was then invited to serve as a tutor for a follow-up workshop for the competition winners.
Organized by the iF - International Forum as part of the iF - Design Talents event, the three-day workshop took place in Taichung, the center of Taiwan’s bicycle manufacturing.
A total of 20 students from 7 different countries came to Taiwan to exchange ideas and work together to improve their design thinking processes and concepts. This exchange also allowed students to gain an appreciation of cultural similarities and differences.
Highlights included visits to the local Merida bicycle factory and a traditional crafts museum, creating a memorable experience and reinforcing students’ highly favorable impressions of Taiwan’s life and culture.
