"Prior to the production of a flower plaque, I would make a draft at will using pencil and paper before finalising it on computer. Not only is this practice different from most of the companies which adopt computer drawing directly, but it also goes beyond the rules of traditional processes.


This is the first time I unveil my production process to the public. The design of the first skateboard is a manuscript while the second is an artwork developed from it. I have added a flashing peacock in the middle to make the design more distinctive. I hope everyone can learn more about the skills and charm of flower plaque production." - Choi Wing Kei


Choi Wing Kei got exposed to flower plaque production when he was studying primary school. He has committed to the industry after graduating from secondary school. Over his 30 years of career, he has created more than ten thousand flower plaque. Continually maintaining the tradition while exploring innovative designs, colour combinations, fabric, lightings and materials, Choi has always been striving for perfection in production. Seeing people stop by to appreciate his flower plaque or take pictures of it, is Choi's highest satisfaction.


Choi Wing Kei is an alumnus of TWGHs Lo Kon Ting Memorial College.

「我自己預備製作花牌前,會先用紙筆隨心繪畫草圖,才用電腦按草圖完成具體設計,有別於現在大部份公司直接以電腦製圖,又超出傳統工序的規矩。這次是我首次完整公開我的製作過程,一塊滑板是設計手稿,另一塊是依據手稿製成的作品,更特別在正中孔雀加上閃燈變化,希望可以讓大家更了解花牌紮作的技藝和趣味!」── 蔡榮基
