Approximately 2 weeks ago, we attended Main-Main’s grand opening, with the honour of being invited to be one of the designers of their Make It Happen Exhibition at Jumpa @ Sungei Wang.

Main-Main is a creative incubator who helps build and develops creative startups in Malaysia. They believe that by forming a complete creative ecosystem, the local creative community would be able to thrive and flourish.

Therefore when they posted about the idea of having 100 creatives to crossover for this project, we knew that we had to take part.

Because Creatives + Crossovers = Fun!

The theme is 每一个【M】代表一个精神,一种态度, which translates loosely to

/

‘There Is A Spirit Behind Every M’

/

We were given a list of 100 M Words to start with, and eventually tap into its potential and design an icon based on the chosen word.


Feeling adventurous, Carrot and I decided to go with Morphing.
We think that i fits the overall exhibition theme really well, as creative businesses are constantly changing and morphing into different shapes, sizes and forms.

The word morph comes from the Greek word "metamorphosis," which means to transform. We think that glitches will be able to convey the message clearly, because when we transform or break out of our comfort zone, we will inevitably have problems or obstacles.

Therefore, we think that using glitch which means ‘ a small problem or fault that prevents something from being successful or working as well as it should ' would fit the theme nicely.

Thank you Printcious for the awesome tees!
