Joseph Foo speaks at TEDx Chiangmai, Thailand

Joseph, co-founder of 3X & 3nity speaks in TEDx Chiangmai recently on the movement of giving.

"It is more blessed to give than to receive' is a movement created by 3nity for Oloiya, a popular BBQ dried meat brand in Malaysia. inline with one of the company's three brand pillars, the idea of giving hope to remind people that this Chinese new year, instead of receiving all the goodness & fortunes and keeping it to ourselves, we hope to bless our friends & needy by giving in whichever way we can."

Starting from the community in Petaling Street (China Town, KL), activities of giving were planned and laid out consistently over two months prior to Chinese new year in different part of the country with different acts of giving (partnering with fruits stall owner, ice-cream seller, Spring Festival couplets' calligrapher, BBQ dried meat company etc). All these activities were documented in form of video spread across social media with positive responses.

The campaign identity is based on typographic treatment of inspirational quotes of giving. These were then used on newspaper ads, Facebook posts, environmental art (were painted on building/public places creatively across the country). An active Facebook page is created for people to share their stories of giving or photos of the environmental art and activities.

As a result, the movement of giving has given a new perspective to Chinese community of celebrating Chinese New year, as for Oloiya, by spending less than their previous year advertising budget, their sales increase enormously, and most of all, through this movement of giving, the brand is able to put their brand values into practice and it inspires the Chinese community.

Currently, as a continuation of this movement, we hope to inspire others to be a part of this movement by initiating their own activities of giving. This year on the 15th of September, Petaling Street will hold an event that will set an example of how this movement can be widely spread. The key to the event is the willingness of the people from Petaling Street to show that giving is not only about money but can also be about contributing their time and talent.

Tobias Wandrup receives a reddot design award for his Edge knives

Fiskars Edge knife series has garnered red dot design award for product design for 2013 in the Kitchen section. The Edge knife series was designed by Danish designer, Tobias Wandrup, whose Functional Form knife series already won the Red Dot design award in 2006. 

The red dot jury explains: "The distinctive choice for a modern kitchen – Fiskars Edge  The new Fiskars Edge range is a modern take on perhaps the most essential tool in any kitchen. Its progressive edgy look follows the strong trend of sleek, fully black design. The range of seven knives combine influences from both Eastern and Western kitchens while the distinctive black coating on the blades offers high resistance against corrosion and makes them easy to clean and maintain. For the new knife range, Wandrup searched for a form that is modern, universal and genuinely Fiskars. 

Speaking about his latest creation, he said: “I think this knife 4 range has a certain pride of being a true Fiskars product, it has simplicity and energy. I want to make things for Fiskars that are truly Fiskars, but also stretch the brand to new limits. Fiskars does have the courage to take the brand further, and this series is a good example of that.”

Will you be skeptical when someone is nice to you? Will you doubt his sincerity? Will you be wondering if there is a catch? Or could it be possible that kindness has been absent from our life for too long? Giving is more blessed than receiving. Can we ourselves start to be more giving? Sharing is joy! Giving is Joy! We believe that when we give with all our heart, the world will be a better place. We wishes all a Chinese New Year full of blessings!

The world we live in is imperfect. If it was not, we would have no place to grow, transform or evolve. Imperfection is natural, and within imperfection lies the seed of perfection. Imperfection is subjective as well, as different people may have different perspectives; imperfection is conditional, as someone or something imperfect in one context may be perfect in another.
