Chan Hei Shing
Hei Shing Book Design | Hong Kong

Chan Hei Shing’s enthusiasm for art and design can be seen in his works, which focus on multicultural diversity — an appreciation which developed during his time studying in both Hong Kong and the United Kingdom.

He graduated from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and went on to further his studies in London, where he earned a Master’s degree from the Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London, in 2008. Chan has won several international and local design awards, including the YIC Young Design Talent Award (HKDC), Guardian Student Media Award, Young Writers’ Debut Competition, HKDA Global Design Awards and the Swatch Young Illustrators Award. He has also exhibited his works in London, Berlin, Brussels and Hong Kong. Currently working as an independent book designer, Chan is also a visiting lecturer at School of Design, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University teaching courses in book design.

40 UNDER 40 AWARDS 2016



“Ask not what design can do for you, ask what you can do for design.”

I am very pleased to receive this special award by Perspective Global as one of the 40 creative talents under 40 years old.

Perspective, Asia’s leading architecture and design magazine, proudly presented the tenth edition of its annual 40 Under 40 Awards.

Every year, Perspective selects 40 creative stars under the age of 40 from the fields of art, architecture, interior design, graphic design and new media, product design, and fashion and accessories, whom we believe will shape the design world in the decades to come. The final 40 were chosen based on professional achievements, contributions to the industry, and potential for future development and growth. Consideration was also given to any awards won, participation in industry events at a speaker, panellist, or judge level (where applicable) and contributions to society.

書就是… A Book is…


A piece of paper reflects not only time but also space. Books are formed by binding papers together to become containers of words that serve as a reservoir as well as a spring of wisdom.
