It is the effort of research, creativity in design; intelligence and sensitivity in the designers’ thought. Taking part in such exhibitions, we have captured the market needs and the requirements of enterprises in order to orient our training program to closely meet the reality of enterprises and markets. The collaboration with the businesses not only creates employment opportunities for students but also creates a "playground" for students to freely create, and experience new things –which may be useful for them in the future”.

Nowadays, the calendar is not just about dates, it's also a piece of art, a decorative piece in every home, so a calendar maker needs innovative designs to meet that need.  And of course, no one can be as creative and innovative as young people, who are always full of ideas and should be exploited. We always wish to realize the ideas of the students and bring them to the "public" through the exhibition like this”.
