When 22-year-old Chan Ka-lai created a T-shirt for a campaign to raise public awareness of cervical cancer, he never thought his design would be chosen and mass-produced. 'I am very happy that my design will be worn by people on the street,' said Mr Chan, adding that he was very honoured to make a contribution to the campaign. Mr Chan is one of seven students from the Hong Kong Design Institute who were invited by the Cervical Cancer Prevention Alliance to design T-shirts for their publicity campaign. The budding designers, who are taking a higher diploma in fashion design and product development, displayed great creativity and artistic talent. Between them they were able to create 11 funky T-shirts to get their messages across. Renowned local designer Barney Cheng also designed a series of T-shirts to promote the campaign. Mr Chan's was the only student design chosen to go with Mr Cheng's collection. 'I am thrilled that my work has gained recognition from outside. I get my inspiration from my daily life and surroundings. Magazines, the Internet and chatting with friends are good ways to get design ideas. 'I always remind myself to pay attention to the seemingly mundane details of my surroundings ... they can be a fountain of creative ideas.' With two trumpets juxtaposed together in the shape of a butterfly bow, Mr Chan's design echoed the ribbon-shaped symbols used in other health campaigns to raise the public's awareness of diseases. 'Many health concern groups use ribbons to symbolise their campaigns,' Mr Chan said, adding that The trumpets are a metaphor for rallying calls for people to pay more attention to the disease and get regular medical check-ups.'
