A highlight for Creative Bloq was the character exhibition in the main hall, which provided a platform for up-and-coming designers from Taiwan and beyond, as well as giving visitors an opportunity to meet the artists behind their favourite classic cartoons. Read on to find out more about three original characters that caught our eye, and the designers that created them.
