Brand name


What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

TaiwanFest is an annual festival dedicated to promoting Taiwanese Arts and Culture. We focus on contemporary artistic expressions and present programs that reflect today's Taiwan.

The 2009 festival will be exploring the concept of marriage utilizing the visual metaphor of cactuses and diamonds. This is to imply that a new journey of love is full of joy and sorrow. Like a cactus in a desert that must find strength to deal with the adversities. They develop a soul that is crystal clear and full-of-life in that process.
