INDEPENDENCE: The history of graphic design in Singapore since the 1960s

The first-ever book tracing the evolution of the graphic design community in Singapore since it became an independent nation-state. Situating the emergence of modern design with the country’s desire to build as nation, the book examines the growth of independent graphic design studios against a backdrop of national policies and societal trends. The story is retold chronologically over five decades until the 2010s, and features interviews with pioneering designers as well as a compendium of their works.
