While Southeast Asia may share a number of cultural similarities, the writing system of each particular nation can be radically divergent due to the different historical conditioning and foreign influences.

However, with ASEAN today envisioning a better regional integration in the future, could designers identify a sense of convergence in the various writing systems of Southeast Asia? How could different scripts coexist harmoniously?         

This workshop explores the possibility of Southeast Asian multilingualism by inviting participants to design a multilingual and multi-script hybrid logotype. Participants will first choose from a collection of words representing the natural and cultural elements commonly found throughout the region, and with each particular word, participants will design a trilingual multi-script logotype. On top of this, incorporation of relevant graphic elements into the logotype is encouraged.


Bring list: 
Participants are advised to bring along writing and drawing tools: flat brush, pointed brush, calligraphy pen, ink, pencil, pen, papers, scissors, glue, etc.
