Graphic Design, Typography & Identity                    
Project Overview

Fatih is a graphic designer and creative, based in Singapore who is deeply passionate in the realm of typographic systems and graphic design, and draws his inspirations from language, history, culture, religion, and literature. The majority of his works are based on ideas of the past, recontextualised for the modern setting. Fatih holds a belief that everything around him can spark inspiration if pondered deeply enough, yet recognises that sometimes, the most profound ideas strike when he least expects them. This balance of active thinking and spontaneous inspiration fuels his creative process.

Stage Two: Interpretation
Linguistic Context: Kau Faham Bahasa Tak?
  • A common sight in the lives of many Malays, the kain pelikat is a diverse checkered fabric, available in various colours and patterns, serving as a versatile textile deeply integrated into the Malay daily life. Jawi letterforms are painted onto unused kain pelikats, sourced from family and relatives. Incorporating Jawi letterforms onto this fabric nods to the script’s potential to persist and thrive amidst the modernization and westernization of the Malay world, much like the kain pelikat itself.

    The flexible nature of the Jawi script is reflected in the various ways this fabric can be worn. This highlights the enduring usefulness of this fabric from our ancestors to its present-day usage. With this approach, Jawi can be presented as a tangible identity, reflecting its potential to endure across generations, akin to the kain pelikat itself. The zine publication serves to mirror the adaptable stylings of Jawi with the diverse methods of wearing the kain pelikat. The pelikat symbolises our connection to Jawi as a mode of communication and its significance to Malay identity.
