Yidan Prize Medal: Masterpiece in Detail

The global vision and inspiring missions of Yidan Prize are encapsulated in the design of its logo. It is a minimalist icon formed by contemporary and traditional Chinese elements that cascade with multiple meanings.

The icon is designed by internationally renowned designer Dr Kan Taikeung. The overall concept is formed by two Chinese characters: “一” and “丹”. “一” is created with the traditional ink wash painting technique, generating an Oriental aura. The geometric lines that go through this simple character form a door that leads to unlimited space. The red dot inside the door resembles a blooming lotus, which represents a loyal heart. It stands for the vision and big heart of an educationist’s commitment to building a better world through education.
