Thread design

Thread design are a studio based in Beijing, their location fits in well with my plans to teach in China. They produce quite a broad range of design and are quite a large studio, which is quite different to the design studios that I am normally attracted to. A lot of their work is quite corporate looking, but their are a few projects that appeal to my tastes as well.

Restaurant branding.

Cocktail bar branding.


I have found a studio that I am really interested in the look of in Singapore. They produce work in both English and Chinese which is what initially appealed to me, but they also produce a lot of publications and print based design work. 

One of my favourite projects of theirs is a calendar designed to 'save paper'. They asked twelve individuals, all from different creative disciplines to create an object using paper, in order to elevate its status.

Thanks to digital proliferation, paper's numerous variants and breeds are dying out, leaving only the dull A4 copier paper, most commonly found in offices.
