Singapore illustrations through the eye’s of Lee Xin Li

Singapore illustrations through the eye’s of Lee Xin Li

Singaporean illustrator Lee Xin Li created a bunch of Singapore illustrations. Some of them are realistic and some such as the tram image and the Old National Theatre were once part of the Singaporean city icons. Personally I really like the Katong illustrations, with the old shophouses and  which looks like the Singapore girl hitching a ride on the back of a bike.

Singapore designer Zoe Lai created a series of Icons of Singapore for a company that manufactures shirts for tourists. Zoe created icons of famous landmarks of the island, such as China town, Lau P sat, Istana, the Merlion and Changi Airport. What strikes me most is the similarity to the “Icons of Istanbul by Tamer Koseli

 What do you think about these Icons do you like them?

This is an awesome time-lapse movie about Singapore – The lion City. Keith Loutit created the film which takes you on a journey though the pulsating city and its wonderful architecture.

“For ‘The Lion City’, the idea behind the extension of the tilt shift technique is for focus and distance to be something the viewer can experience. It also doubles to communicate the constant heat and humidity that hits you whenever you leave the comfort of air conditioning in Singapore.” via fubiz

Singapore Airlines identity

Posted by rod - 31.03.2010

Singapore Airlines has definitely become Singapore biggest brand name. The airline saw light in May 1947 when a Malayan Airways Limited Airspeed Consul took off from Singapore‘s Kallang Airport on the first of three scheduled flights a week to Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh and Penang. On 16 September 1963, the Federation of Malaysia was born and the Airline became known as Malaysian Airways. In May 1966, it became Malaysia-Singapore Airlines. In 1972, Malaysia-Singapore Airlines split up to become two entities – Singapore Airlines and Malaysian Airline System. In 1968, the sarong kebaya uniform designed by French couturier Pierre Balmain was introduced and the internationally recognized image of the Singapore Girl debuted. The symbol of the logo represents a Silver Kris. images via theessentialist, lonegreysquirrel, justtheplanet, and wallpaper

The Prodigy Concert Poster by Emek. The poster was inspired by the Merlion which is one of Singapore’s national symbols. The Merlion is an imaginary creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish. Its name combines “mer” meaning the sea and “lion”. The fish body comes from Singapore’s ancient name back when it was a fishing village — Temasek — meaning “sea town” in Javanese. The lion head represents Singapore’s original name — Singapura — meaning “lion city” or “kota singa” in Sanskrit and Malay. found via omgposters.com
