Description
JAD International Design Competition (hereinafter, JADIDC) is the most famous design awards in Korea and has played an important role as one of the leading international design competitions since 1994. JADIDC has helped students who have various backgrounds to communicate with each other and encouraged them to express their creativity and inspiration through design by requesting various suggestions for new design approaches with no boundaries and restrictions.
Due to the recent worldwide economic crisis, gloomy projections on the future have been heard daily and even the possibility of economic depression is predicted. Design industry does not seem to be apart from the current economic slowdown because it has been closely connected to the consumerism.
On the other hand, it has been said that ‘Design loves the economic depression.’ ‘True design is really looking forward to the depression.’ Historically, designers have produced better designs and tended to thrive in the hard times, such as the Great Depression, wars and resources insufficient crisis. From this point of view, the design is not merely related to the economic depression, but even paradoxically interconnected to the crisis as well.
