Behind every design lays a unique story.

In a Tuesday evening, four young talented prize winners joined Prof. Yip and the WBHK team in a casual meeting with wine and crackers.

We want to go big and let these valuable thoughts shared with you, with everyone in the community!

你的人生幸福嗎?幸福,並不只是指物質上,還有精神上;快樂,更能使人幸福。我相信每個人的童年也有一個美好、快樂的經歷,就是玩紙飛機;以紙飛機為Wellbeing標誌的主題,象徵希望、快樂、開心等正面信息;加上W的形狀,代表Well-being in Hong Kong網站。以綠色作主色,表達健康、自然、幸福感覺。

半杯水的道理相信大家也聽過,幸福與否,只在乎你怎樣看每件事情。摺紙飛機的過程是需要學習的,摺出一隻飛得遠、飛得高的紙飛機更需要研究,但只要你享受整個過程,你便能感受到當中的快樂、幸福。

希望香港人透過 Well-being in Hong Kong 網站可再經歷玩紙飛機的快樂,放下消極的情緒及任何負面情緒,再次擁抱人生,感受幸福! Well-being in Hong Kong 網站也如紙飛機一樣,乘載著香港人一同往幸福進發!

Chan Wang Tung 著

I am a keen yoga practitioner. Practising balance can strengthen our mental, physical and social health. You must use your mind to keep your balance. Balancing would be a quite heavy physical activity. Training would be more effective in groups which would also encourage more social connectivity.

logo-design-sharing01I consider myself as an IT specialist. Thinking outside the box would help me to find solutions to problems. Taking up the challenge and staying in positive attitude enable me to cope with the stresses of life.

My logo design was inspired by a Yin Yang Symbol of Tai chi. The lunar and solar eclipses are representing the well-balanced universe. In this logo design, the solar eclipse is visualised but lunar eclipse is abstract. Being mindful is not only the source of wisdom, compassion and creativity but also is the key to improve mental well-being.

The dancing human is infused into the lunar and solar universe. This man symbol provides the message to be active, energetics and positive. Being active is not only promoting our self-confidence but also is the key to promote our physical well-being.

Three leaves are the “one-to-many” connections with the people around you. The three different colours in the leaves are representing the diversified connections. Getting connected is not only building up the interpersonal relationship but also is the key to develop our social well-being.

A well-being life is nurtured through the cultivation of mental, physical and social balance. Such triads of mental, physical and social well-being are incorporated into this logo. This logo design could provide good identity because it is simple, energetic and contemporary.

在構思這個設計的時候,是希望能透過設計讓大眾也能夠直接感受得Well-Being的感覺。在思考何謂Well-Being的時候有幾個元素是不可或缺的,因此希望能透過Logo就能表達出喜悅、自然和舒適這些的感覺,來感染不同的人,也讓人們可以生活得Well-Being。

其中以花與愛心作為元素,以表達自然、舒適和窩心感覺,而透過這兩個元素便組成出,那代表著Well-Being的花朵。這花朵的設計並非具有平常那些直直的花柄,而是清晰明顯的曲線,仿似懸浮飄動著,同時以此概念讓這花朵帶健康、快樂的訊息向外飄散,感染更多不同的人。

Wong Wai Kin著

In the society, well-being seems to be such a clinical thing – eat good foods, travel, have a social life, develop some hobbies, take medications, exercise, wealthy – we are mind-washed that our own fulfilment is from outside.

To me, well-being is about living a healthy and fulfilling life and first of all is to be ALIVE. My answer to this is totally from inside ourselves, which is LOVE. This is the entire concept of my design – a living and smiley heart.

Maybe same as you, my life is like a tidal wave, sometimes up and sometimes down. The society and our childhood let us think we don’t deserve love. We think if we let love in we’ll become too irrational and soft. Once upon a time, I even walked away from love because I am so disappointed that it is nowhere to be found.

Luckily, after all kind of success and failure, I learn again how to love myself. If we didn’t have love for ourselves, we wouldn’t even try to take care of our wellness. Anything we do for the good of ourselves must be an act of self-love. Then after I have enough love to myself, I can give out love to other, and to let it come in. From this point, love becomes infinite. Love is now an ongoing fulfilment in my life.

“Life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing, but you are bound to do something else. Something hurts you, yet you know it shouldn’t. You take certain things for granted, even when you know you should never take anything for granted. A tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. And most of us live somewhere in the middle…So which side wins? Love wins. Love always wins.”

― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

After all, love is the only rational act.

JUST love each other or die.
