TP designers at Singapore
"Design Street", TP students invited
the public to review and respond to selected works
such as character designs, video promotions, story
boards and tee-shirt designs.
TEMASEK Design School (DES) participated in the annual
Singapore Design Festival, which was held from Nov 9
to 23, 2005. In all, 90 students showcased
their design capability through two platforms
Design Gallery and Design Street.
The Design Gallery, aimed at highlighting the importance
of design in Singapores knowledge-driven economy,
featured the students works. Design Street was
the more interactive platform, with members of the public
invited to participate in design activities by reviewing
and responding to selected student works.
The experience turned out to be a valuable one. As
noted by Mr Ernest Paul, Manager, Projects, from DES:
Most public feedback was complimentary but some
exposed our students to the harsh
realities of trying to create a meaningful impact on
real world users.
