Just after we met and have a great coffee at CSHH with T Y Zheng and Jason Song, the man behind ACRE, we jump into a car to visit their studio. It is a great square white space full of geek tools and toys ! I heard about ACRE after seeing the Units of measure calendar on insagram, if I well remember... This is unique and amazing poster with thousand of details... My first idea was to sell some in the shop here, but it was out of stock before this could happen !!! They just launch a second edition if you want it.
 
Here comes some picture of I took, and some of the project of this young and promising Singapore studio.

Nice to meet you Bravo Company Singapore - www.mr-cup.com
 
Already 3 weeks since I came back from Singapore and haven't found time to post about new meeting with designers there... Here comes the first one, the great Bravo company... You must have seen one of their project on a blog or an other (including this one !), they do such inspiring typographic work. Even if they are not specialized in restaurant identities, they have done several for varied places around Singapore...

This was one of our topic of conversation, how the identity of a restaurant (and its variation over all tools) is essential today. What is interesting in Singapore, as it is a small country / small town, is that many restaurants now have the graphics in the center of their project, as well as the food that is served or music they play; it is almost impossible for a new place, if it wants to exist, to not use an agency to have a great graphics. It improves the visibility of graphic design and provides work to design agencies... the circle is complete !
 
The wood coasters was the ideal gift...

When I came for the first time in Singapore last october, I discover the amazing BooksActually, the shop of Kenny Leck. Mixing all his passions in the same place, it is like a disneyland store for creative like me... books, magazine, vintage items... After my visit, Kenny contacted me as he want to have the Helvetica wood letters in his shop, we set up a real meeting this time... In fact we spend some hours together as we have so much to share... BOOKSACTUALLY is only the visible part of the iceberg, Kenny is also behind MATH PAPER PRESS, a small press publisher of poetry, novels, and essays & BIRDS & CO., the stationery brand. Ad to that the thousand of vintage and found items collected over the years, and you can imagine how passionate is this man !

Here come some images and yes, the Collection 3 of Helvetica wood letters is exclusively on sell at BooksActually !
