JURIES: CREATIVE MAESTRO STANLEY WONG WILL BE JURY PRESIDENT OF DESIGN LOTUS & PRINT CRAFT LOTUS AT ADFEST 2012
HONG KONG:Stanley Wong – a multi-talented creative director, graphic designer, interior designer, photographer, film director and artist – is joining ADFEST 2012 as Jury President of Design Lotus and Print Craft Lotus.


Wong, who is also known under the alias ‘AnotherMountainMan’, began his career as a graphic designer before joining the advertising industry for 15 years.

He returned to Hong Kong in 1999 as CEO and Executive Creative Director of TBWA / Hong Kong.


“As a visual creative person, I am passionate about ideas that are inspired by local cultures, and works that stand for Place and Time, alongside economical values, social values or even more. I’m looking forward to reviewing the design works from Asia this year, and observing the phenomenon of the Asia Pacific design scene, the movement and happenings: what is creative at this point in time? And why do we create?” asks Wong.


In 2000, Wong decided to turn his talents to TVC direction, joining joined Centro Digital as Chief Creative Officer/Film Director. In 2002, he set up his own production company, threetwoone film production limited, which has since produced over 200 commercials.


“I’ve known Stanley all the way back from when he was a young art director bursting with creative passion. I’ve seen him grow, excel, and make his mark on many disciplines. What I admire most is his artwork creations based on Hong Kong street culture,” says ADFEST President Jimmy Lam.


“A person who is multi-talented is always busy on multiple projects. Stanley is so difficult to catch and has turned down my invitation to be a jurist at ADFEST three times. He told me he has cast the dates of ADFEST 2012 in stone, and I also told him I will kidnap him to Pattaya if needed.”


Wong believes in blurring the lines between creativity and commercial work. In addition to being a successful creative professional, he is a gifted artist. His ‘redwhiteblue’ artworks have featured at the 51st Venice Biennale, zkm in germany, and were se lected for the permanent collections in various galleries like the V&A Museum in London and the Hong Kong Museum.

 
In 2004, Wong was inducted into the Alliance Graphique Internationale, a club of the world’s leading graphic designers.


Away from advertising, Stanley has profound interest and passion in photography and fine arts, and his artworks often explore human rights and broader social issues.
