Catalogue design or Yeo Workshop on the occasion of the group exhibition Klaus by Hayama Projects. The catalogue unfolds up to more than a metre in length, holds Luca Lam’s take on a familiar folktale ‘Hansel and Gretel’ by the Brothers Grimm as inspiration. Graphically, it is designed to look like crackers from the folktale afar, and on close inspection, the texture appear as a blurred overlay of the wingdings used in the narrative. Klaus embodies a figure of idiosyncrasy, misinterpretation and misappropriation. It’s exploration of themes pertaining to memory, landscape, and labyrinth is expressed typographically with the wind-swept playful typesetting throughout the catalogue.
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.
