When is it really that designers feel they can have total freedom to create awesome work? Rarely.
With clients being in the picture, the design process is always dialogic; purposeful to the solving of a problem or challenge. How then, can designers create creative context for themselves? To showcase new ways that design can be relevant and implemented in the market place.
Courage for creatives in fields of design to move outside of their traditional spheres of practice has in recent years been causing a stir. With rise of design thinking in realms of management consulting to new business initiatives with design processes at its core, design in an increasingly technological world has found radically new expressions.
With the above said in mind, we are slowly beginning to witness this zeitgeist in some form or the other here in Singapore. Commonpeople had the opportunity to speak with Felix Ng, founder of Silnt and the recently formed Anonymous. In the interview, he shares with us his thoughts on design, his current projects, and aspirations for a greater role of design in the Singapore landscape.
Anonymous was responsible for organizing the recent DesignFilmFestival.
