About

ampulets 安普樂 is a graphic and communications design studio.

We are known to create work that is always considered, serves function, and invites/rewards curiosity. We believe that good design responds to and satisfies our human desire for both meaning and beauty.

Our work involves developing visual identities, brands, publications and communications design for  for clients, such as museums, universities and institutions, government and businesses that range from cafes to corporations.

Because many of our projects are multi-disciplinary in nature, we help our clients put together and manage creative teams comprising writers and editors, photographers, illustrators and interactive designers. Our attitude and approach towards design and project management is to be hands-on and collaborative.

We especially enjoy projects that allow us to work closely with our clients to develop their brands from idea to visual representations, and to brick and mortar and online platforms.

ampulets is founded by James Teo in 2006.


Objects and Collaborations
Outside of client-based work, we make independent art and design projects, as well as commissions for exhibitions and magazines.  ampulets also curate and put together shows and projects that feature work by artists, designers and other creatives. You can read more about them here.

In April 2012, we decided it was time to launch our own product label Neighbourgoods. Neighbourgoods makes everyday objects in collaboration with other creatives in Singapore, inspired by the people, stories and places around us. Check out Neighbourgoods at www.neighbourgoods.sg


Publications and Awards
Both our client and independent projects, including objects by Neighbougoods, have been featured in Singapore's dailies The Straits Times and Lian He Zao Bao, Esquire (Singapore), Art4d, ArtBlouin (Southeast Asia), Creative Review, as well as in The Design Society's book Independence: The History of Graphic Design in Singapore since the 1960s. 

ampulets' design "Days of Lightning" was part of the "Singapore Icons" series of ceramic ware by Supermama's label Democratic Society which won the 2013 President's Design Award.
