In 2007, the most important event of Taiwan in the industry of design was the completion and opening of ShigeoFukudaDesignMuseum, which is located in Tung Fang Institute of Technology. Since 1966, Master Fukuda had participated in various international graphic arts or poster design exhibitions. His works had won awards internationally and had solo exhibitions in the USA, Europe, Japan, and many other places.

Master Fukuda was appointed as visiting professor at Yale University in 1982. He was in charge of the visual design of the Tokyo Olympic Games. He had served as the president of Japan Graphic Designers Association. He was also a member of Tokyo ADC, director of Japan Graphic Designers Association, visiting professor of TokyoUniversity of the Arts, and honorary professor of Tung Fang Institute of Technology. The philosophy of founding ShigeoFukudaDesignMuseum is putting down roots of design education in Taiwan; in addition, to make great strides in building a superior design platform.

A 5-feet 3-dimensional steel sculptures situated in the campus of Tung Fang Institute of Technology is a world-class art design landmark designed by Master Fukuda. This magnificent sphere of linked hands and feet symbolizes the educational principles of our schoolwhole person education and global concern.

Despite the perishing of Master Shigeo Fukuda (1932-2009), his artworks are still highly valued and treasured by important world design almanacs and will always be circulated widely in the world. Needless to say, Master Fukuda is an irreplaceable role model in visual arts. His unique and humorous artistic style reveals the playful and satire theme appropriately.

Tung Fang Institute of Technology had its first encounter and cooperation with Master Fukuda several years ago at the Chinese Design Seminar which was a conformity plan sponsored by the Ministry of Education. The teaching principles and art collections of our school also had gained Master Fukudas commendation; therefore, he consented to establish an overseas design collection museum in the campus of Tung Fang Institute of Technology. In 2007, ShigeoFukudaDesignMuseum was founded and Master Fukuda generously donated 1000 exquisite self-satisfied artworks to our school. The 5-feet 3-dimensional steel sculpture in front of the DigitalAcademicBuilding symbolizes whole person education and global concern. This magnificent world-class sphere of linked hands and feet, the Universe of Human Culture,has indeed become the public art landscape of southern Taiwan.

On July 12, 2009, President Ma Ying-jeou visited our school. Accompanied by Principal Chiu, President Ma had a spiritual exchange with Master Fukuda and signed his autograph.

To commemorate Master Fukudas remarkable artistic achievement, the wife and daughter of Master Fukuda, Yasuko Fukuda and Milan Fukuda, donated Master Fukudas posthumous artworks to well-known art museums around the world. Our school received 750 pieces among all, and this increased the collection of Master Fukudas artworks to 1750 pieces.
