International Stamp Design Award

                                                                                                                                     Graphic Design is also part of the artist's important record of work. The artist, the designer in this case, is particularly interested in designing book jackets (in 1970's, 80's) as he wrote, edited and designed numerous reference books for school students. His books written on Graphic Design, has been recently included in the list of reference books recommended for Hong Kong secondary school students. The book was listed in the Art Curriculum Handbook published by the Hong Kong government. By 1997 onwards, the artist also designed stamps for Macau (with 2 international awards) and important exhibitions to celebrate the return of Macau to his motherland, China.
