This festival is created and organized by Foreign Policy, Roger&Sons and The General Co. who all moved into a new warehouse building in the industrial part of Singapore Jalan Besar where many of the traditional hardware businesses reside.
Design Pasar is about bringing design, craft & arts to the community and to the neighbors.
It is inspired by and adapted from the traditional Pasar Malams (Malay word: Pasar means Market; Malam means night) which are often see popping up in the neighborhoods in Singapore.
Design Pasar hopes to elevate the neighborhood experience, allowing the general public to have greater access to affordable design and locally-designed and locally-made goods, arts and music.
The theme for this edition of Design Pasar is about sticking together as a community. It is also paying tribute to Singapore National Day and celebrating how far Singapore has come so far today with a thriving and growing creative industry and community. The brand visual identity takes cue from the shapes of objects found in this hardware industry dominant neighborhood. These shapes are designed as stickers so that anyone can create and design their own tote bag or poster with these stickers – an analogy of the mission of Design Pasar – which is to get everyone to be creative and to participate in design. #LetsStickTogether
