Commenting on the unique partnership, Kingston Vice APAC Region Sales/Marketing and Business Development Vice President Kevin Wu said in a press statement:
“We at Kingston believe that our memories connect us to our inner strengths. For over 30 years, we have worked consistently to empower our customers to create, manage and preserve their digital content on the move, with best-in-class products. Through our partnership with CSD, we are thrilled to announce the Kingston x CSD APAC Mask Design Competition to capture the most enthralling memories on face masks. We expect that this initiative will certainly motivate consumers to come up with something unique for the rest of the world in the form of beautiful face masks. Our partnership with CSD will help us turn a new leaf in our journey to bring people closer to their memories which they really love; and, to embody that Kingston is with you during these life moments.”
CCSD COO Jonathan Chang commented on the competition, saying:
“In the past decade, CSD has been looking at the consumer healthcare sector with a new perspective—changing the monochromatic impression of the consumer healthcare sector by injecting lifestyle and designer elements into it. With over 70 years of the medical industry experience and 5 years of reinventing the concept of what a face mask is, we have successfully invented a series of face masks that not only provides protection for your health, but also acts as a statement of personal style. The Kingston x CSD APAC Mask Design Competition is another step towards reinventing the concept of what an everyday item can be; creating something unique and personal through a collaboration with our consumers, as they turn their individual memories into a fashion statement.”
The Kingston x CSD APAC Mask Design Competition will run from November 24, 2020 to December 24, 2020. More information on the contest can be found on the official website.
