Applied Arts Announces Creative Collaborators for 2016
December 7, 2015
Edmond Ng and Emily Tu, Tung
On the eve of our 30th anniversary year, Applied Arts is pleased to announce the appointment of Toronto-based creative studio Tung as its new creative collaborator. Emily Tu and Edmond Ng, the award-winning duo behind Tung, will act as design directors for all five Applied Arts issues next year and embark on a reimagining of the magazine’s visual components to carry through 2016. Prior to establishing their studio, Tu and Ng worked in some of Toronto’s top design firms including Underline Studio and Concrete Design, respectively.
“Next year, we are celebrating our past but also looking to the future,” says Rosetta Heckhausen, publisher of Applied Arts. “Emily and Edmond exemplify the kind of fresh, exciting Canadian talent that Applied Arts has covered for three decades and were the perfect choice for us — not only for their design sense but for their position in the market, too. We are excited to see what Tung brings to the table as they start bringing our content to life.”
In 2016, Applied Arts will release a series of collector’s editions, starting with the all-anniversary retrospective in March and followed by the four awards annuals, which for the first time will each be a celebration of their respective disciplines (Photography & Illustration, Design, Advertising & Interactive, and Student).
