Design Conversations 2019

Shaping a shared vision for good Design

Identity, collateral and exhibition design for the inaugural industry dialogue

Design Conversations is an industry dialogue organised by the DesignSingapore Council (Dsg), and is an annual platform for stakeholders from design and non-design industries to discuss strategies and opportunities for the design sector.

Through a line-up of intimate and engaging programmes, the inaugural Design Conversations 2019 celebrated our past achievements in design, shared Dsg’s vision for good design, demonstrated how good design can make a meaningful difference, and discussed plans for us—businesses, designers, and members of the public from all walks of life—to implement and achieve good design. Participants uncovered the role of design practices in developing business solutions and a work force, and set the path for new talents and specialised training and learning programmes.

BLACK was invited to creative direct and brand Design Conversations, and design a showcase of outstanding and iconic designs by Singapore creatives— curated on parameters such as impact, inventiveness, sustainability, and so on.

The stage was organised like a cosy living room to host in-depth sharings throughout the day, with selected furniture designs from local creatives
