The HKDI is a leading design education institution in Hong Kong under the VTC group providing quality education that cultivates knowledge, professionalism and new talents for the evolving creative industries.
We are committed to nurturing design talents with critical thinking, cultural sensitivity, social responsibility and an international perspective.
A brand is simply a collection of perceptions and associations about a product, service or organisation that people hold in their minds.
This is WHY maintaining the strength and stature of the HKDI brand is important, WHY the right image is critical and WHY our brand matters.
HKDI Brand Positioning Platform (BPP)
All the key ingredients of the HKDI brand, including its strengths, uniqueness and competitive edge, are summarised under the HKDI Brand Positioning Platform (BPP). The BPP aligns with the VTC brand strategy and has the following components:
- Business Description
- Brand Positioning
- Brand Attributes
- Brand Promise
- Brand Strapline
Each of the above elements serves a slightly different purpose and when used together, gives a thorough explanation of the HKDI brand in its entirety.
The BPP is expressed through the HKDI visual identity, both of which are of critical importance to the brand. Familiarising yourself with the information in this BPP will give you a deeper appreciation and understanding of the HKDI brand story.

This is an essential description of what HKDI does, and is used commonly in external communications and public relations.
Creativity in Action
This is what the HKDI brand stands for. It is the "lead thought", that is, the first thing that we want people to think about when they say HKDI.
This dynamic positioning encapsulates HKDI's hands-on curriculum, teaching methods and emphasis on practical skills. Its unique learning experience is based on a "think-and-do" approach, cultivating students' passion for creative learning while imparting the necessary skills and know-how for them to succeed.
These describe who the HKDI brand is, and the qualities that define its personality.
- Encourage Openness
- Celebrate Diversity
- Embrace Cultures
- Nurture with Passion
- Learn with Fun
These are operating principles that guide HKDI's internal behaviour and conduct, as well as its relationship with the external world.

A brand promise is what the HKDI brand pledges to its stakeholders. It is the end benefit that the brand delivers, which further brings out its positioning and states.
To reflect the HKDI's uniqueness, our curriculum is enhanced with elements of culture and sustainability to instil students with the interests, inspiration and knowledge in these areas. It is relatively easy to make a promise, but it takes a lot more effort to live up to it. To make sure it is not forgotten, we are especially sharing it with you.
