We see signboards all the time everywhere, on the street, in shopping malls or in playgrounds. They look boring and uncreative with plain words on it. Sometimes they are even unclear and unnoticeable. This day, a group of children with South Asian background comes into LEAD Centre to share and express their creativity with us by designing new signboards for Cyberport, thanks to the arrangement by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: Integrated Service Centre for Local South Asians.
Time to warm up! Crocodile! Cat! Lion! Frog! Why is everyone screamed out animals and random things? It’s games time! The loud voices and the great energy of the children filled the room so quickly.
Each group was enthusiastic to start planning their own signboard by the time they get back. Drawing, scribbling, erasing, writing on the whiteboard… Lots of ideas!! Finally coming up with interesting and cool ideas! Time to get to work.
Wrapping and cutting, folding and taping…
Everyone is concentrated and trying to make the most outstanding signboard. Look at the colour and the 3D signboards. What a great way to catch attention when placed in public areas. I’m sure everyone will be pleased to have such nice decorations as they walk along the street! I might even take a picture with it!
After hours of hardwork, the signboards are finally done.
Look at the different shelves on the board! There are 3D cans, cakes and a packet of milk. Can you guess where it leads to? The supermarket! Lollipops on the top shelf! You can stick your heads into the hole and they become ‘lollipop heads’!
Look at the different passengers on the minibus! The minibus is so colourful and it would be great to have such a nice minibus in real life! It is definitely a great way to represent the public transport interchange. I am sure people will be able to find the area easily with such a clear signboard!
Wow! What a huge camera! This leads to the multimedia centre. The 3D lens must have taken a lot of effort and time. Guess what is inside the lens!
The three different designs of the signboards are so creative. They all have their unique style and design. They each have their own surprises. It would be amazing if these signboards are placed in public. I am sure everyone will be attracted to them! It is very impressive to see the creative ideas each group has come up with. They all look quite difficult. I couldn’t believe how much they have achieved in such a short period of time. I was so impressed with the outcome and hopefully everyone has enjoyed the day! We would like to thank for the support from the Chan Dang Social Services Foundation which has made our youth become creative young designers!
