D# – A Showcase of Design in Singapore’s Music Scene

In March early this year we collaborated with our good friends from Indigo Child Agency on an exciting project to create a new platform to showcase the works of local designers who have worked on music projects and artworks in Singapore.

D# (pronounced D Sharp) is a platform that serves as a visual presentation of Singapore’s talented designers in the music industry with the intention to create a deeper conversation on the importance and role of design in the process of artist branding and development.

The exhibition was held on the rooftop of the National Design Centre from 6 – 8 March, in conjunction with Singapore Design Week – showcasing the brilliant works
of local designers and artists such as Dawn Ang (Aeropalmics), Le Matt, Marc Gabriel Loh, Linying & The Super System.
