Accept hardship gladly and enjoy the process
we established CAN Culture, Art & Nature in 2010, hoping that it would become a cultural and creative social enterprise, which is good for society and community. We wanted to drive urban and rural sustainable development through the filtration of culture and creativity. We care about various issues, such humanities and cultures, land environment, disadvantaged students and industrial innovation, and practice the ideas of culture and creativity in these issues.
Blessing Flower - Taiwan graphic design
Flower twining is a delicate and elegant folk craft that is rich in cultural connotation, but it has faded from people’s vision as the times changed. Just as it was about to disappear without anyone knowing, a pair of warm hands recollected it. After years of effort in careful conservation and operation, the wonderful craft is brought to the people once again. This is the work of the first preserver of the “art of the blessing flower” in Taiwan – Hui-Mei Chen.
Essential Oil of Taiwan - Taiwan packaging design
The shop also purchased the old timber left from the renovation of Old Street to shape them slowly by hand into wooden sticks filled with warmth. The considerate design allows for more convenience during use, which not only treasures natural resources, but also extends the life of old timber.
HAKSIP Village - Taiwan community design
The core spirit of HAKSIP Village is collective learning. The LOGO is based on man to create the significant value of HAKSIP Village; the characteristics of the LOGO are designed to match the colors and style of the space; the LOGO design is finally completed by using Chinese characters.
Tofu and Dried Tofu with Bittern - Taiwan domestic non-GMO soy milk shop in Taipei
HIDEKAWA uses four water purification systems to filter the water for cooking the carefully selected 100% domestic non-GMO and pesticide-free soybeans, without adding preservatives or any chemical additives.
Engraving Experience DIY Activities - Taiwan best one-day tour in Sanxia
The Fengtian stone material carefully chosen by Master Wu is used for teaching engraving, so that the people experiencing the work can sense the beauty of traditional Chinese characters and even make a small square seal that belongs and symbolizes them, which is a way of passing down the cultural meanings of Chinese civilization.
Shokunin School - Taiwan community design

Peaceful Firecracker Paper Recycling - Taiwan packaging design
The people in Taiwan believe that collecting cracker papers from god greeting festivals can bring good luck.
