ECOQEE saves the World competition project
Toy2r has teamed up with the Hong Kong Vocational Training Council, Business with Design Management course of the Department of Business Administration this year and organized an internal student competition project. Through the competition, BDM students will base their concepts on environmental awareness, ECO, and apply the design concepts to Toy2R's 3.5 inch BABY QEE DIY vinyl figure .
The selected designs will have a chance to be exhibited in various locations around Hong Kong and the first show are now available at HKTDC Design Gallery, the show will carry on in Taiwan December 2009.
These exhibited designs may even be produced as production pieces as part of Toy2r's 15th Anniversary releases next year. Through this project students will have the chance to apply their design knowledge in a business context as well as learn through integrating design with business through using products, event promotion, and green Marketing.
Raymond Choy, the founder of Toy2R is very supportive of this project and visited the VTC campus on Sept. 25, 2009 to deliver a brief to BDM's students. Not only is he supportive in their actions but Mr. Choy was pleased to offer scholarship opportunities for the students with the best designs.
