Internationally acclaimed Indonesian artist Arkiv Vilmansa debuts in Singapore with his solo exhibition, One or Nothing, a graphical take on Singapore’s relentless pursuit of being number one. Singapore's first designer toy-inspired exhibition ‘One or Nothing’ is a series of twelve paintings that are based on uniquely Singaporean icons. The exhibition invites art and toy enthusiasts to explore the distinct Singaporean way of living through the perspective of an international artist. Arkiv's signature style incorporates fluid and curvaceous lines paired with bright vivid colours which is seen in many of his paintings. ‘Arkiv Instant’, his first vinyl toy figurine, is also one of his most recognised works. The exhibition runs at the FLABSLAB gallery at One Commonwealth from 16 November to 30 November. >>

Over the course of a year, the General Insurance Association of Singapore had been prominently featured in a series of article profiles of industry professionals in the local Business Times. We were tasked to compile the interviews into a compelling format for publicizing careers in the industry.
The design we created appropriately exudes quality and excellence, with a vertical gilded slot on the cover showing the title ‘PREMIUM TALENTS’.
The featured individuals were shown in realistic illustrations to break from the usual cut and dried photographic approaches.
Wooonderland is an experimental fashion retail playground appealing to the young and the bold. It shares visual a link with sister store “Actually…” through the three prominent circles which take the place of the latter’s ellipsis.
The brandmark is deliberately big and bold, and the palette colourful and bright, reflecting the personality of the boutique as well as the merchandise it carries.
For Christmas 2008, our campaign for iFourum – a shopping floor dedicated to hobby arts and crafts shops – centred on the ‘The Gift of Art’, supported by colourful graphics developed for a ‘furoshiki’ fabric wrap giveaway.
Each fabric wrapper was presented in an attractive package sealed with a foil-stamped sticker. Unfolding the package reveals pictorial instructions inside that show wrapping methods for items of all shapes and sizes.
iFourum is a level in Takashimaya Shopping Centre which houses a series of boutiques dedicated to art-related materials, services and courses.
Delivering fresh ideas within a consistent framework is one of the most difficult aspects of effective brand communication. For iFourum, we had helped to build its brand on a core of ‘imagination’.
In the spirit of the season, the title for this campaign is ‘Super Limited Edition Gifts’, punctuated by the branding statement ‘Christmas Re-Imagined’ in a gilded bauble design.
Exclusivity is an attractive idea to Singaporeans, from which arose our proposition for unique gifts found nowhere else. The twist is that uniqueness comes from the individual. Thus, each store offering creative wares and services at iFourum trumpets a bold claim that is cheekily qualified by a down-to-earth statement.
“4th is a one-of-a-kind kitchenwarestore located on West 4th Avenue in Kitsilano, Vancouver BC. All their goods are carefully handcrafted and unique. Each package tells a unique story about the products.”

Pamela Baker-Miller and her grandmother Connie own and operate Frances May, a carefully curated fashion boutique in downtown Portland which stocks some of the best independent designers around. After several successful years they decided it was time to re-brand the store. Built on the nostalgia of elementary school flashcards and library book slips, the concept solidifed around the store’s namesake–Pamela’s great-grandmother–who was a school teacher.
