Two students and a teacher from South China University of Technology (SCUT) in Guangzhou won silver awards in the 2016-17 international A’ Design Award and Competition. The competition is one of the world's largest and most highly regarded design contests. The winning designs are exhibited in Museum of Design in Italy.

The 2016-17 competition recognized 1,958 winners from 98 countries in 97 different design disciplines.

SCUT students Xiao Xueying and Yang Beini, under the supervision of their teacher, Liao Dan, won the Silver A' Design Award for their work on a plastic freezer bag called Easyslice. Liao also won a silver award herself for her design work on a portable learning projector named Show Me.

Easyslice freezer bag

Traditional plastic roll bags can be tricky to use. They’re often frustrating to open as edges stick together because of static electricity. Unlike those freezer bags, Easyslice’s cut dots don’t go through to the end of the entire bag. When the bag is ripped off by one tear, irregular edges appear due to the dot-free edge, making the bag easy to be twisted open. Furthermore, interesting signs on both edges can clearly show users where the two bags meet.

Show Me

Show Me is designed to let people learn anywhere. It is a toy for both children and those who want to learn a new language. With a single button, people can hold it in one hand to capture an object and easily learn the name of it.

A’ Design Award and Competition is put on by multiple international organizations, including the International Council of Graphic Design Associations, the Bureau of European Design Associations, the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design and the Italian Industrial Design Association.

The competition unites designers, architects, artists, brands and companies to acknowledge and promote the very best of design and architectural practices.
