SCM announces result of logo design competition for its clinics

18 December 2014


The Clinical Division of the School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) announced today the results of the logo competition for its Chinese medicine clinics. Mr Tsang Yan-wun claimed the top prize, and the first and second runners-up prizes went to Ms Choy Pui-man and Ms Ma Yeuk-mui respectively. The winning design of Mr Tsang will become the official logo of HKBU’s Chinese medicine clinics.

Mr Tsang said he took inspiration from the symbol of yin and yang and branches and leaves to develop his design. He said that yin and yang represented Chinese medicine theories, and branches and leaves signified Chinese medicinal herbs, while the blue and orange colours meant that Chinese medicine advocated the spirit of nature. He added that the branches and leaves growing on yin and yang denoted that SCM not only heals diseases but also nurtures new generations.

At today’s prize presentation ceremony, Professor Albert Chan, President and Vice-Chancellor, presented cash prizes of HK$5,000, HK$3,000 and HK$2,000 to the champion, first runner-up and second runner-up respectively. The competition received a very good response with a total of 245 entries. The panel of judges included Professor Albert Chan, Professor Bian Zhaoxiang, Associate Vice-President, Ms Rowena Li, Director of Communication and Public Relations, and Dr Jack Lee, Assistant Professor of Academy of Visual Arts.

SCM has been providing professional quality clinical service to the public since 1999. There are eight Chinese medicine clinics directly operated by SCM, and another seven run jointly with the Hospital Authority and other NGOs.
