“40 under 40” Awards by Perspective


Perspective, Asia’s leading architecture and design magazine, presented the tenth edition of its annual 40 Under 40 Awards, with a presentation ceremony on 24 May at Admiralty.

Recognising young design talents from across Asia, there was a record number of nominations for the 2016 edition in six design fields — art, architecture, interiors, graphic/new media, products, and fashion/accessories. 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, panelist, or judge level (where applicable) and contributions to society.


Our current incubatee Polly Ho (Design director & Co-founder of Creatique Studio Ltd) and  our alumni Maria Mak (Founder & Designer of Twisted Sisters) were selected as the final winners of 40 under 40 Awards in the category of Fashion and Accessories.  Our heartfelt congratulations to both of our talented designers!
