Taiwanese designers win album package design award at Grammys
Las Vegas, April 3 (CNA) Taiwanese designers Li Jheng-han (李政瀚) and Yu Wei (于薇) won the Best Recording Package award with their design for the album "Pakelang" (八歌浪) at the annual Grammy Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday.
The award is one of a series of Grammy Awards presented for the visual look of an album. It is presented to the art director or directors of the winning album, not to the performer(s), unless the performer is also the art director.
Yeh Tzu-yin (葉紫音), who delivered an acceptance speech in English on behalf of Li and Yu at the award ceremony, said they were thrilled to take part in the Grammys through "Pakelang," an album performed by Taiwan's Second Generation Falangao Singing Group and the Chairman Crossover Big Band.
The album's cover has an abstract design depicting waves on a Taiwanese coastline.
According to Wind Music, which produced the album, the design was inspired by Falangao, an Amis village located by the sea in eastern Taiwan's Taitung County.
Standing on stage with the two awardees, Yeh said the two were happy to help people learn more about Taiwan, which is "a beautiful and a peace-loving country."
"I hope, someday, you can go and visit Taiwan, and everyone is super welcome," Yeh said on their behalf.
Li and Yu competed against four other contestants for the Best Recording Package award, including another Taiwanese recording package designer Xiao Qing-yang (蕭青陽), who was nominated this year for a Grammy in the same category for his work on the album "Zeta."
It was his sixth Grammy nomination.
The 64th Annual Grammy Awards was held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday.
