The Crowbar Awards 2017: Advertising, Film & Photography — 2 Gold, 3 Silver, 3 Bronze
As of Jan 2016, there are 1,411 stateless people living in Singapore. Without citizenship, they are denied of basic rights like education, employment, healthcare programs and freedom of movement.
The lack of awareness about statelessness amongst the citizens has led our Stateless to live their lives in a vicious cycle of prejudice and isolation.
Utilising various platforms, Almost Home creates awareness and a concern community to help increase their chances of attaining citizenship and improve their quality of life - bringing them a step closer to Home.

The Crowbar Awards 2016:Interactive (Social Responsibility) — 1 Bronze
Surveys have shown that Singaporeans see the society as self-centred. Yet on the other hand, they see themselves as compassionate and friendly.
Although there has been an increase in social media attention and articles about good deeds happening around the country, everyone has chosen to disregard them due to human instinct of seeking out dramatic and negative events.
Our Kind, an online aggregator that focuses on sharing positivity around the country.
When such actions are being discovered and recognised by the public, the citizens will feel assured and more motivated to act upon them.
With Our Kind, it counters the assumption of Singapore being a self-centred society. Instead, a society that is kind.

A publication done for a school assignment. Adapting content from the First Things First manifesto, the design inspiration came from the idea of circuses.
Creating a metaphor whereby trained animals depict how designers are being treated in today's society — captives forced to perform and accommodate under the commands given to them, unaware that they are acting in an unnatural form.
Break Your Tent Down urges designers to call for a return to a humanist aspect of design and remind them of their worth.

BORN TO CREATE
A VSCO brand video done for a school assignment.
Copy: "There were moments when all you ever wanted to do was to turn back time. They may not have always been pretty or easy, but every one of them felt special. Each uniquely crafted for yourself, and created by you. You are born to create. So go beyond and create the unquestionable, the spontaneous and the meaningful. Because these creations are what makes you, you."

(All works shown are done within the 24hrs.)
Together with Iris Teoh, Ody Tay, Mavis Lok & Mhmd Mirza, we took part in the annual 24-hrs Crowbar advertising challenge in 2016.
Despite AsiaOne's 21 years of presence online, the news portal faces low brand awareness and low visibility of content. By bringing out the "cool" factor and the work-life balanceaspect of the brand, they are hoping to reach out to a younger target audience, who are mostly fresh graduates who are about to enter the working industry.
How can we refresh the perspectives of our new target audience towards AsiaOne?
People hate being neglected in a group, everyone wants to feel inclusive.
Using a full digital approach, Get Alive allows people to be immersed in a playful environment - an online dance party dedicated to the 21st birthday. The campaign also aims to introduce the new TA to a newly rebranded AsiaOne with the tagline - Live More with AsiaOne.
