Staff Achievements

Congratulations to Mr Martin Wong, Lecturer of the Division of Social Sciences, Humanities and Design, on winning a Merit Award in the DFA Design for Asia Awards 2022 for his painting software “Pure ink”.

Mr Wong has dedicated his efforts to ink and digital art, and developed “Pure ink” in recent years to simulate ink diffusion and water-based colouring effects in computers so that amateurs and professionals can easily convert digital images into ink painting to facilitate artistic creations.

“This is the second award that Pure ink has won since its launch three years ago. This award has further encouraged me to continue to offer Pure ink as freeware to promote digital ink art and its applications in both commercial and industrial design,” said Martin.
The DFA Design for Asia Awards is organised by Hong Kong Design Centre annually to celebrate design excellence and acknowledge outstanding designs from Asian perspectives. Since its launch in 2003, the event has become a stage upon which design talents and corporations can showcase their design projects internationally.

The award presentation ceremony was held at the Hong Kong Palace Museum on 30 November 2022.
