Jason Fan


Jason Fan received a master degree of Communication Design at Pratt Institute in New York USA. He founded Signet Design in 1991. Combining local spirits with global vision, Signet Design soon became one of the leading design firms in Taiwan.

Jason was elected President of Taiwan Graphic Design Association for 2006–2008. During his term, he not only broadened the interfaces with more cross-disciplinary programs, such as applications of Taiwanese indigenous culture and arts in the design of daily goods, but also created the bi-monthly Energy Bar to connect with experts from different fields, as Jason believed in the importance for designers to appreciate things beyond design prospective. 

He worked as the CEO of the Cultural & Creative Industries Center at National Taiwan Normal University where he built closer collaborations with design related associations both locally and globally. Jason is currently one of the originators and member delegates of Taiwan Design Alliance, a respected multidisciplinary association of Taiwanese designers. In addition, Jason was elected Vice President of the International Council of Graphic Design Associations (ICOGRADA) in October 2009.

Jason has received numerous design awards, including the golden prize of Taiwan National Graphic Design, Judge’s Award of the Graphic Design in China and Excellent Awards from the Hong Kong Designers Association. In 2007, he was awarded the distinguished alumni of the National Taiwan University of Arts. In order to train more young professionals, Jason teaches part-time at local art institutions and is often invited to be the speaker and juror in nationwide and overseas awards schemes.
