Instructed by Ms.Yan Shuo, Xiong Menghan, a senior student majoring in visual communication from the School of New Media Art and Design won the iF Design Talent Award 2018 with her design “Quiet MUSIC”.
Her work centers on “Smart Care”, which is one of the four competition topics of the iF Design Talent Award 2018. Out of concern for the hearing impaired, she designed the Appcessory which transforms different types of music into all kinds of color schemes and motion graphics. The Appcessory connects at the same time to the intelligent devices that translate the rhythm of music into the tactile feel. Thereby, the hearing impaired can also perceive different emotions, rhythms, and types of music.
The work is to be on one-year display in the iF Design Show in Hamburg, Germany, and to be shown permanently on the iF Design app.
The iF Design Award was set up in 1953. As one of the world's most celebrated and valued design competitions, it is organized by the iF International Forum Design GmbH every year. The iF Design Talent Award provides a trustworthy stage for young designers to show their competence at the beginning of their careers.
