Gillman Barracks (GB) is Asia’s up-and-coming destination for contemporary art. It will be distinguished as a vibrant centre in Asia for the creation, exhibition and discussion of contemporary art.
Named after British general Sir Webb Gillman, GB is set amid lush greenery and was once a stronghold to the First Battalion of the Middlesex Regiment. The conserved colonial barracks now houses galleries and creative businesses, as well as the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA).
Inspired by a quote from artist, Paul Klee, “a drawing is simply a line going for a walk”, BLACK designed the brand identity of Gillman Barracks (GB) based on the concept that “art is the line that can go across all walks of life”. The project was done in collaboration with Singaporean artist collective, PHUNK and the TRANSMISSION apprentices.
SingaPlural is an annual showcase that celebrates design in all its forms, functions, stories and inspirations.

Bringing back the old beauty and charm of the historic rooms in the former Empress Place Building, restaurant OCF reminisces the courtship days of Sir Stamford Raffles and his little-known first wife—Olivia Cassivelaun Fancourt.

The Spa Artisan is a new concept spa at the historic Fullerton Hotel Singapore that celebrates the tradition and heritage of asian spa treatments, elevated and delivered with a contemporary touch. BLACK worked on the branding as well as the environmental graphics in collaboration with Formwerkz Architects to create a garden spa in the heart of the city.
A casual restaurant serving comfort food, Table Manners is the least expected place to be called that name. Always staying gracious – but sometimes irreverent – Table Manners promotes proper dining etiquette through engaging and entertaining ways. From the napkins, to the quirky quotes, and down to the staff uniform, everything comes with a mischievous twist. The acronymic logo mark of the restaurant also secretly hopes to ‘trademark’ everything it can possibly own. Interior by Formwerkz.
A Thousand Tales is conceptualized to bring style and quality to our everyday living. From a flagship furniture store that offers a striking range of home-ware, it has since evolved into a growing group of lifestyle concepts, with several restaurants, bars, furniture and retail stores under its arm.
With A Thousand Tales continuing to build their empire of dreams, Black have designed for them a strong and inspiring logo. The colon serves as an introduction and the beginning of many more tales to come.
The Icsid World Design Congress 2009 was the parallel event to the Singapore Design Festival 2009.

Collaterals included printed materials such as the congress book, brochures, nametags to badges. As well environmental design, infographics and signages for the congress venue.
