Surface Asia 09 cover

July 18, 2012

Issue 09 is about art & fashion and we decided to start changing direction for our cover, we want it to be more fresh & dynamic than our previous covers. After research,we decided to feature Singaporean artist, Zhao Renhui’s (left) and clothes from Sunny Lim & Koon Hor (right) on the cover.

Sketches I made for the photo guide & layout (left). We got an art gallery for the photo shoot location, and after that Brendan Zhang (the photographer) gave me style references based on the sketches & location (right).

Then shit happened. All flights to Singapore are fully booked, so I couldn’t attend the photo shoot. Luckily, Brendan and his team did a great job. The drafts looks good and we only requested him to adjust the colour a bit. I introduced new fonts for the cover.

…the final cover.

This is what I’m working on since  October 2010.

Surface Asia is a sibling publication to the original New York-based Surface magazine that’s been celebrating and encouraging the world’s most forward-thinking artists and designers for the last 15 years. Now, Surface Asia is doing the same for the pioneers, provocateurs, groundbreakers and innovators in fashion, design, architecture, art and culture across the dynamic Asia-Pacific region, from Hong Kong and Macau in the north, through Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, right down to Australia and New Zealand.
