Design researcher and writer Justin Zhuang shares some of his findings from writing two books on Singapore design histories—Independence: The history of graphic design in Singapore since the 1960s and Fifty Years of Singapore Design—and running the Singapore Graphic Archive. The discussion will be moderated by Yap Lay Sheng.
