Puncheart

This project is focused upon the design of the new concept of a punching tool that is able to make a hole large enough for a coin. This ability gives this project its unique edge and innovative design. With this punching tool, we are able to produce our own coin boxes by ourselves using empty bottles. These can then be used as donation boxes, with the money we save being donated to the third world. It is not only a tool for giving money, but also for sharing our love with one another. After donation, donors can receive feedback via UNICEF, such as photos and letters, from the people.

Buckets of Love

Design for a social enterprise in Phnom Penh (Alma Café) which helps the needy through the Buckets of Love campaign.

The bucket carries a smiley face that lights up not only the receiver but the sender as well. A little gesture of love goes a long way.

360° Water Barrier

When flash floods or high tide arrives, the road barrier will move its metal shutter to the other road barrier, creating a line of defence across the flood-prone areas. During low tide periods or mega events, the barrier can be lowered to match the street level for easier crossing. Using the existing road barriers, we can make some improvements to it so as to deter any flash floods or open up to any major events.

The agency developed key visual illustrations which are based on the juxtaposition of the different representations of harlequin aiming to shed light on the disparity between the comical representation of the character and the reality of living with Harlequin syndrome, emphasizing the need for greater understanding and awareness of the condition.
