Let design speak: Postcards raise concern on global issues at European conference
Ng was invited to speak at Internet and societies – New innovation paths, an international conference organised by the European Commission-funded PARADISO FP7 project. The conference was held in the European Commission's Charlemagne building in Brussels from 7 to 9 September 2011. It explored the interactions between the internet and society in the present and in the future, discussing potential shifts in societal paradigm and aiming to build a sustainable future.
In presenting his creation, The World of 100, which brings alive the boring statistics of the stark reality we are in, Ng shared what he, as a graphic designer, has been doing in response to societal issues of global concern and how he can contribute to change in the world, which can be accelerated by the internet.
Ng has recently revisited the World with new figures and insights in 2011 and turned the posters into postcards. The book has just been launched and can now be purchased online.
