Toy2R 36" Qee Sticker Bear @ Hong Kong Design Gallery
TOY2R extends its thanks to all of the artists who contributed to this project and made it a success.
Toy2R demonstrated the art of designer toys and the D.I.Y movement for top government officals and premier business.We are very appreciated of our audiences and artists who gave us such a valuable opportunity to promote our concept of "Anyone Can Design".
TOY2R is proud to present the STICKER QEE project. Created to display the innovation and support of the art of designer toys, TOY2R put together this 36" QEE BEAR during the award ceremony at the 2008 Hong Kong Award for Industries, one of the most influential commercial organizations in Asia. TOY2R was honored to receive the recognition as the Grand Winner in the category of Innovation and Creativity.
This custom 36" QEE bear was created during the award ceremony, so TOY2R had to develop a way to quickly customize the figure in a short period of time. With the support of 66 artists worldwide - TOY2R secured art from contributing artists and created stickers to represent each one.
The final result is seen an fine example of the collaborative efforts on a D.I.Y. project to bring worldwide attention to the genre.
For those who missed our show, you also welcomed to visit our sticker qee's exhibition in Design Gallery.
