TALENTS 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.

TALENTS 2024 Theme


The theme of TALENTS 2024 will be "THE QUEST FOR THE QUESTION." Driven by creativity, designers are challenged to set their sights on discovering and solving problems. They also need to recognize whether the identified problems have practical value: can solving these problems lead to actual improvements and innovations? Is the investment of manpower and resources reasonable and feasible? etc. These are questions that designers must carefully consider and balance. In the pursuit of creativity, they need to maintain a rational perspective and decision-making ability.
