Starry Warry Night
Lots of time before the Star Wars preview (tickets a surprise from Randy and Ernest). So I thought I’d grab the chance to snap a pix of this glowing new typo-site, the Singapore Visitors Centre in Orchard Road.

All the time i saw it in the daylight, i had asked myself why they made it so white.. now i know…It looks so nice at night…
Pink, I believe the lights were.
Changed it, they must have.
Nicer, it was.

Yes, I remember someone saying something about the colours. That’s why I was half expecting the colours to change as I was taking the photo.
Just love these oversized letters, with tiny people in the shot for scale.
You have been tomorrow-ed
so can anybody identify the font used?
And while you’re at it, the Singapore too? PLEASE :)
Ern and I have been wondering every single time we walk pass it :\
Uniquely Singapore’s most definitely a bit of custom lettering. We haven’t seen the rest of the letters, have we? But they used Nick Shinn’s Shinn Medium for the sans.
Jesus fxxking Christ! The Singapore Visitor Centre font is Shinn Medium!!!!! All the angled terminals are there! Almost nothing’s tweaked!
Now, I’m happy. Oh yay oh yay!
I should’ve made the connection. STB >> Singapore Visitor Centre
And I’m happy to see that my blog’s keeping everyone up!
Haha, I must have missed that thread. Shame on me. Yes, the night is still young, just like us. Hehe.
Lancerlord: I’ve noticed. :)
Came across this blog by chance last week and think it’s just SUPERB. (I’m only an armchair fan of typography; main interest is calligraphy and handwriting.)
Has anyone commented on the masthead of The Straits Times? When the pilot was published, I wrote to the deputy editor criticizing the dreadful spacing of the Trajan caps; he replied saying it was being tweaked, but the ‘improved’ version remains an object lesson in how NOT to space caps!
Yes, we’ve commented on it before. And you’re right about the kerning.
I’m thinking of looking for a good design agency to work with.
Does anyone knows of any companies name or website?
Thanks and appreciate some help.

project for the next bunch of interns to do, instead of running around holland v? (oooo)
Cool. But I wonder if it’s too American-centric, cos I only got a few right. :-P
Next bunch of interns better be able to do cartwheels.
Too many signs, too little time.
