“I had the privilege of being invited to be part of the jury at the first edition of the Chinese Hiii Brand back in 2010—along with Wally Olins, Joe Duffy and other high caliber branding specialists—and I experienced quite a revelation in discovering the world of powerful and complex Chinese branding.
I thank the board of the prestigious Asian competition for broadening my view on international design and I am humbled by the invitation to become a Honorary Life Member.”
