​​​​​​​《設計奇觀 —— 香港正稿時代》是由香港理工大學設計學院的信息設計研究室策劃,展出的設計正稿全由手工製作,製作年份於1950至1990之間,更展出製作正稿所需要各種的工具。主視覺以「正稿背後的製作過程」作為設計概念,顯現出設計時經常運用工具繪製時的三個方式:繪畫、量度、剪貼,並使用適合的工具,配上三原色去製作平面設計中基本的幾何元素,喻意基本功對當時製作正稿的重要性,最後以負片形式表達正稿已順利完成。

‘Designing the Spectacle: Pre-digital graphic design practices’ is an exhibition organised by Information Design Lab, School of Design, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. It exhibited a collection of hand-painted design artworks, design and drafting tools from the 1950s to 1990s. The main visual is inspired by the drafting and artwork-making process before the finished products, visualising three common process of pre-digital graphic design practices — Draw and paint, Cut and paste and Measurement. The corresponding tools are matched with three primary colours and basic geometric elements, implying the importance of mastering ‘the basics’. At last, a negative film effect is applied throughout to symbolise the final and completing step of the artwork-making process.
