When invited by Kult to be one of fifty designers to create an alternative cover to any book we desired, we chose a novel we have always loved - Waiting for the Mahatma (1955) by R.K.Narayan.
ampulets was invited by Supermama to create a design for a series of ceramic ware for the "Singapore Icons" project. The project is produced by Japanese ceramic brand Kihara Inc , under Supermama's new label Democratic Society. Why the title "Days of Lightning"?
We were asked to develop a visual identity for a traditional Chinese home bakery, named after a much-loved son and friend.
Listening to the many stories told, we decided to create a logotype for the Chinese character 汶 or Boon. With each element of the logotype, we sought to intertwine the wishes for the bakery's future with reminders and recollections of Boon's own loves. Our hope is that the logotype may inspire the telling and re-telling of relationships.
Endangered Species / 虎虎生危 "My parents have 6 sons and 1 daughter. I am the youngest and my mother had me because she was hoping very much to have another daughter. My mother not only defied the campaign by having so many children, she also contradicted the campaign's assumption that people then desired sons more, and would try for more babies simply for this reason. Today, like my mother, I would much prefer daughers. However, unlike her, I have no children of my own."
We therefore made a poster that used the slogan of the 70s, but reflected instead today's reality. Our poster's tigers - male or female - are lifeless rugs, (campaigning) in a city that is desperately seeking babies.
