A Boy & His Crayon

A Boy & His Crayon is an exploration of shapes using oil pastels drawn on vintage newspaper, and spatially imagined in public spaces. The idea is rather straightforward: I believe it's necessary for me as a designer to return to the physical medium of drawing. As a kid, my dad would provide me a blue crayon and a lined notepad when he took me with him to attend weekly sermons at the mosque, just to keep me busy drawing (so I wouldn't be a nuisance running around the mosque and disturbing other patrons).

Little did he know, whatever parenting method he used on me, shaped who I am today. This work serves as a reminder of the day I received that blue crayon for the first time.

Theos Resurgence is a belief system/cult created as a social satirical commentary of the normalization of today's toxic stan culture. It aims to challenge people to rethink they way we consume media and how we treat celebrities.

This modern form of worship brings negative effects upon those who excessively partake in such a culture. Theos uses the references from pop culture and religious/mythological ideas, crafted in a dark and satirical manner, creating a dialogue about the fine line between appreciation and obsession.

Singapore Fringe Festival

The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival is an annual festival of theatre, dance, music, visual arts and mixed media created and presented by Singaporeans and international artists. Themed differently each year, the Festival aims to bring the best of contemporary, cutting-edge and socially engaged works to the Singapore audience.

As a democratic nation, we Singaporeans seem to be empowered with freedom: people are free to act, choose and speak. Yet, the supposed freedom is systemically curtailed by limitations enforced by the powers. As our nation progresses and the populace become increasingly educated, this highly regulated “freedom” in the nanny state polices is now rigorously being questioned.

Through the use of calligram-inspired typography and the idea of pseudo-randomness, the key visual tells a story through typography which appears seemingly random. Randomness alludes to the supposed freedom Singaporeans possess. Visuals have been arranged in a highly structured and regulated manner and visually trapping the performance image within a frame, making reference to Singapore’s highly interventional democratic policies.

Fersken (noun.) /furs-kern/

Likened to the peach, our skin bears all the similarities of freshness and beauty, just like the delicious and juicy fruit.

Fersken curates its products from exclusive and carefully sources ingredients from the Scadinavian landscape. This sub brand under Body Shop eccentuates its brand value and offers a fresh concept towards its audience.
