Last month, I came back in Singapore for some days and took time to visit designers and creatives, again... Believe it or not, I met Jonathan in october, but do no figure out it was him... I understand he was the guy who share the office with Felix Ng and team when the cab took me back to Slint/Anonymous studio I visit back in october...
 
I remember to have print one of Jonathan work back in my design school years, a project he done about Hiroshima... I thought it was the work of a master designer, but no, it was just one of his school project that shown his talent... His illustrative web site show all his creativity... minimalist and powerfull... He is now set up his own studio under the Roots name... Some picture took in his office...

Nice to meet you : Hjgher / Underscore

No, this is not going to be a blog about Singapore design studios pets ! Just before meeting Felix NG in Singapore on october 19th, I went to the Hjgher studio. I discover their work when they send me the third issue of the Underscore magazine, a self initiated magazine done "juste because we want to do one". We exchange about creativity around a good tea and I can shoot their nice studio...

As a lot of studio, Hjgher tream work for its own clients before launching their own projects, by passion. They start with the Underscore magazine, "An independent magazine with thematic content attuned to a simple rhythm; quality of life. Conceived to underline/highlight simple values that are important but neglected in our everyday lives."
