200: Points in Singapore’s Natural History is a book designed in conjunction with the launch of a new exhibition at Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum. As part of Singapore’s Bicentennial, the exhibition reflects upon 200 significant natural history events in the island’s past. Equipped with a navigational timeline on the spine, the thematically categorised book showcases a different year in every spread, each adopting a focal point with an array of specimens, ethnographic materials and illustrations to guide the readers through an expanded understanding of our own natural history and heritage.
With the theme A State In Play, SingaPlural 2018 is a celebration of the indeterminacy of process and the stage of experimentation and work even before design sets in. The design direction draws inspiration from the process of prototyping and experimentation. Line elements feature across the festival identity’s as a connective and adaptable visual device that is presented in different configurations.
