This week, the Taiwanese lifestyle, fashion and art magazine La Vie published a list of the 100 most creative brands, people or public spaces in Taiwan. The ranking is based on an online vote, which gathered a mere total of 12 013 votes. I’m not sure how representative that is, but for anyone interested in discovering what Taiwan has to offer in terms of culture and creativity, this is certainly a great place to start.
In the category for Most Creative Public Space, Kaohsiung’s Pier-2 Art Center ranks first, yay to that 🙂 , and well deserved. For Most Creative Product/Merchandise, Beyond Beauty – Taiwan From Above 看見臺灣, as beautiful as it is, could just not rival with the ad I SEE YOU from EVA Air, much thanks to Takeshi Kaneshiro 金城武 XD . Eslite 誠品 earned the Most Creative title from the selected panel of judges, and rightly so, they’ve certainly done a lot to promote Taiwanese design and creativity over the past few years.
If you still don’t know where to go on this three-days week-end, look through the Most Creative Neighborhood/District or Most Creative Exhibition, chances are you might find something of interest 🙂 .
