Student's Feedback

I am honored to be deeply involved in this challenging project, and I believe that the rejuvenation of old brands is not only a rebranding, but also an inheritance of values with far-reaching significance. Through the practical class of this project, we not only crossed the boundaries of branding theory, deeply understood and realized the practical application of knowledge, but also saw the needs and values of the old brands to be renewed in the development of the times. The communication and reporting process with the brand also brought us a strong motivation for learning and practicing.

--- Yifei Chen, Class 212, Visual Communication 2+2 Program

I realize that China's long-established brands, in addition to inheritance, also need to carry forward the development, and the development can focus on the new trends of consumption such as youth, internationalization, fashion, and then the application of new technologies, new materials, new ideas, accelerate the integration of innovation, to better meet the individualized and diversified consumer demand, and revitalization of the long-established brands.

--Shen Siyu, Class 212, Visual Communication 2+2 Major

We can learn from the project the relationship between tradition and modernity, and the profound influence of traditional culture on modern design. Through learning, we give unique cultural connotation and aesthetic value to the old brands. Nowadays, traditional culture and modern technology collide fiercely, and in this collision and fusion, each of them takes on a new vitality. We should also think about how to combine tradition and modernity to create a better future, so that the old brands get new development.

--Lu Chen, 212, Visual Communication 2+2 Program

This project practice allowed me to learn more about the connotation and culture of Chinese old brands as well as the humanistic history behind them. I also learned how to use modern design elements, combine traditional elements, and retain traditional characteristics while integrating, innovating and improving, so as to make the old brands more in line with the needs and aesthetics of the new generation. I realized that an old company should not be just three words, but should have a distinctive background of traditional Chinese culture and a deep cultural heritage.
