I was formerly the Administrative Executive of the student corps of the Raffles Institution Red Cross Youth (Batch 53) before graduating and was tasked with this a motif and t-shirt design (being one of the few  ‘artistically inclined’ student leaders).

It was not long ago that found out that the 2004 design was only retired in 2010 – a good 6 years!

 Update: It turns out that this piece is currently on display at SCAD’s Kiah Hall since the beginning of 2013.


This drawing was originally selected work for the Savannah College of Art & Design’s (SCAD) Spring 2012 Foundation Honours Show. (more…)

An Ode to Penguin is a retrospective exhibition organised by BooksActually presenting the private collection of Ms. Karen Wai and Mr. Kenny Leck.  This is the first time an exhibition of antique Penguin books has been held in Singapore with well over a 1000 titles on show (besting even the publisher’s anniversary celebratory attemptsa few years back).



Update: After I left my position for further studies, I was delightedly informed by my colleagues that many of the collaterals are still in use today and formed the basis of other event posters.

Work featured here have been completed during my tenure as an administrative assistant with a community centre.  As such, employers are not always able to provide the most efficient tools for a job.  In this case, working on posters or ticket stubs in a professional software suite had to be dealt with creatively.

Microsoft Office thus became a viable work around for producing printer matter.  The varied ethnicity of the target community also required bilingual considerations in information placement. In addition, a limited palette of colours and bundled system/office typefaces also proved to be a challenge.
