PolyU Design student wins WADI World Design Challenge

Sharon Lee Chun-man, the graduating student of BA(Hons) in Design (Industrial & Product), won the first-place prize at the WADI World Design Challenge on her graphic design which best presents the characteristics of the product and expresses its socio-cultural acceptability. The product is a sustainable, autonomous, cost efficient and energy-self-sufficient tool, which helps to trace the progress of solar water disinfection in a PET bottle, detecting and calculating the relevant UV-rays of the sun, indicated by a status bar and smiley face.

“I was grateful and honored to be selected as the champion. I feel like I am moving forward to the dream of making the world a better place to live in,” Sharon shared her joy with us.

The competition received over a hundred entries from all continents of the world. The winning designs will be used for the foil imprints of the WADIs in different regions.
