LETTING DESIGN GROW
TALETNS originates from Design Shanghai, curated by designer Frank Chou, and was first launched in 2020. In order to better help young designers grow and gradually improve the design ecology in China, TALENTS focuses on the localization of Chinese design, upholds the brand value of people-oriented design, focuses on people through design, discovers potential young designers, and gives them professional career guidance.
