Design Industry Development in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a window to the world of the trends and styles of Asia, making it a great city to institute a well-established design community. Hong Kong also is at the crossroads of Asia, and is a key gateway to the Chinese mainland. Meanwhile, Hong Kong’s design industry is increasingly export-oriented.
The demand for Hong Kong’s high-end design services is rising in light of a more flourishing China market. Many international companies, large and small, rely on Hong Kong designers to tailor products for the Chinese mainland and Asian markets. Hong Kong designers can satisfy the demand for quality-assured creative services, which match international standards and at the same time, take into consideration Chinese tradition and design.
On the other hand, many of Hong Kong’s light industrial products, such as toys, electronics and garments, are highly favoured in the international market. Hong Kong designers have participated in these industries for a long time and they maintain close working relationship with overseas companies. They understand fully the demands of overseas markets and therefore can capitalise on their international vision in designing products, and assisting the Hong Kong companies to advance from Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) to Original Design Manufacturers (ODM) and/or Original Brand Manufacturers (OBM).
With the affluent China market growing more sophisticated, more and more mainland enterprises are keen to stay ahead of the game in the local market while making inroads into the world market. Renowned as a stylish cosmopolitan and design hub in Asia, Hong Kong has always been a forerunner which mainland enterprises look up to their excellence in design, branding, and marketing.
Hong Kong’s design services sector is expected to further strengthen in light of various related government measures and the city’s enhancement in cultural and creative development.
