AN international design summit, themed “The Rebelution,” drew top designers and educators from different areas, including industrial design, landscape design and community and city design, to Shenzhen F518 Idea Land in Bao’an District to share their innovative design ideas Dec. 9.

The summit invited seven speakers from China, Italy, Canada, the Philippines, the Netherlands, France and the U.K. to shed light on creative design, attracting nearly 200 participants.

The summit was hosted by Trey Hobbs, the founder of Shenzhen Stories, a live event that focuses on building an international community through the art of storytelling. Holding a BA and an MFA in theatre from The University of South Carolina, Hobbs has been involved in theatre professionally for the last decade, working with many companies, such as Trustus, NiA and Theatre SC in South Carolina, and Theatre Unspeakable and Black Ensemble Theatre in Chicago.

Now living in Shenzhen, Hobbs is an English voice actor for Fantawild Animation’s hit children’s properties “Boonie Bears” and “Boonie Cubs” as well as theatrical releases from the Boonie Bears franchise.

Ole Bouman, a former creative director of the Urbanism/Architecture Bi-City Biennale Shenzhen (2013-14) who was appointed director of Design Society in January 2015, talked about his experiences finding creative ideas in Shenzhen.

Tosca Killoran, another speaker, shared her thoughts on the construction of creative space during the summit. She is the director of Level 5, an innovation hub in Shekou and also an Amazon best-selling author of children’s books. As a doctoral student, Killoran published research focusing on innovation in education.

Some other speakers, including Tommaso Masera, Michael Patte, Anthony Pantillas and Peng Huidong, shared their opinions on the quality, urban development, individualism, animation production and etc.

The summit received a lot of positive feedback from the participants and many showed their intention to visit the creative design hubs. Some also want to work with the guests to develop further projects.

The summit was organized by the Edinburgh Shenzhen Creative Exchange (ESCE) under the Shenzhen Creative Investment Group. ESCE consists of a Shenzhen Center and an Edinburgh Center. The Shenzhen Center is located at Shenzhen F518 Idea Land in Bao’an District.

Aside from the summit, an international design exhibition named Good Innovation is ongoing at Shenzhen F518 Idea Land until Dec. 31. Dr. Priscilla Chueng-Nainby, an researcher from the University of Edinburgh, and Treasure Hinds from the Anvil Studios as the curators, along with Martijn ten Bhömer and Francesca Valsecchi form a curation team.

The exhibition brings together innovative designs from the U.S., the U.K. and Europe and integrates products and services from outstanding designers to demonstrate the radical concepts of academic design researchers.
