The two designs, together with 99 other works from Jilin University of Arts, were submitted to the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Winter Olympics before October 31, 2018.After waiting for more than two months with anxiety, on January 21, 2019, the good news came that The Chinese knot and red lantern designed by Jiang Yufan stood out from more than 6,000 entries from all over the world and both entered the “top ten”.Jiang yufan couldn’t believe her surprise. Later, she joined the project team composed of professional teachers from Jilin University of Arts and entered the next stage of intense work.After drawing more than 10,000 sketches and making 32 sets of schemes, the effort was not wasted. On August 21, 2019, the design scheme based on red lanterns was officially adopted as the mascot of Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games.Later, on September 17, red lanterns were officially named “Xuerongrong” at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Mascots launch ceremony.The small face in the shape of white snow, the ruyi headdress covered with snow, and the belly that looks like a light, “snow rong Rong” makes the folk saying “snow lights the lantern on the 15th day of the first lunar month” more vivid and warm from the cold.Time flies. More than two years have passed since the official debut of “Xue Rong Rong” to the opening of the Winter Olympics. Jiang Yufan is now a postgraduate student at Jilin University of Arts.More recently, she has been involved in the design of the “Xue Rong Rong” wechat emojis, which will make their official debut during the Winter Olympics.”Light me up and warm you up”, Jiang Yufan hopes that xueronggrong, which was born in Changchun, will go out of home, go to the whole country and travel around the world to warm the world with its own light.Source: Changchun Daily
