Through recent work spanning from brand identities to set designs and everything in between, the showcase vividly demonstrates how concepts and values are balanced in these timeless yet versatile designs.

ABOUT LESS IS MORE
Less is More collates about 120 projects that use only a few colours to attract the eye. In three chapters, categorised by the number of colour inks applied, these creative solutions or visual experiments represent a refreshing departure from mainstream designs that play with selective colour formulations, materials, special printing and graphic details and make a unique appeal. They are tailored for clean and effective brand identities, packaging designs, publications and events, large and small. Whether it is for affordability, visual economy, a non-existing colour stock, or a tribute to modernist art, it is a proof that designs can speak more with less.
