A bilingual branding and publicity project for Drama Box’s ’New Play Season 2011′. The New Play Season aims to encourage more involvement in the local Chinese language theatre by staging scripts from new playwrights.
The logo has the title bracket left open to represent the new open platform and the beginning of fresh ideas and creativity.
This project is in collaboration with Lin Weidong.
This second collection of Young & Restless takes inspiration from the geometry of modern architecture and is pieced using the basic shapes of circles, squares and triangles. With this in mind, the one-piece catalogue is designed and folded in a way that reveals the information and geometrical concept in an interesting manner.
/Experimental Journeys/ records the artist’s personal account of his travel explorations. Every day in the month of February 2011, the artist took a new bus route that corresponded to the date and generated GPS graphics from his passenger experiences. /Experimental Journeys/ embraces the fundamental joy of traveling and explores the role of the passenger as a flanêur.
/Travelers’ Tales/ is a study of the city experience through dialogues of passengers. Recordings of conversations overheard on trains at 5 different times of the day are translated into a series of sound waves installation. The frequency of words mentioned is mapped out to reveal everyday impressions of Singapore’s culture and attitude. With the partially audible eavesdropped conversations, /Travelers’ Tales/ invites the audience to complete these strangers’ stories with their own imagination.
A publication issue that explores and associates the realms of structure and form in our everyday lives. An accordion fold serves as dividers and content pages to the major sections of the magazine and forms the ultimate spine that unifies all of them at the same time. The form of the magazine is also challenged as the title is visible only when the front page is folded.
The traditional Chinese calendar is redesigned for a different audience and purpose.
This includes one that provides daily itinerary and Singlish guide for the tourists,
and another that works as an organizer and a post-it notepad at the same time.
A compact dictionary redesigned to make it even more portable and flat enough to be kept in an A4 folder. The book is split into halves so that the page area remains small enough for easy navigation. The alphabets on the front cover and the corresponding primary and secondary letters along the outer gutter of the pages aid the finding of words.
