Boring Restrictions Workshop
Boring Restrictions:
Workshop by Darryl Lim
Glasgow School of Art Singapore
 
 
The Brief
You are tasked to work on the design (or re-design, perhaps?) of three possible artefacts that have connections to the broader themes of this workshop centred around constraints — pick one to work on:
 
(1) the immigration card that visitors to Singapore will receive — external; printed travel ephemera, (2) the standard back layout of the EzLink transportation card — internal; semi-permanent public transport access, (3) select a whole text portion of the Singapore Constitution to re-design, format and layout into a DIN-size book — hidden but accessible; highly esteemed statutes of the state.

The Workshop
Using the ephemeral graphics from WW2 till the 90s as reference, we were tasked to redesign an existing document in Singapore and I chose the Singapore Constitution as my subject. The challenge was to only use a standard default typeface, no images, black and white, printed on given coloured or white paper. Throughout the workshop, we discover and explore several typographic layouts from the old and reinvent them for the new.
