Several months ago, I met Yanda of the beautiful blog, the artist and his model. He’s a print and interactive designer and “dabbles in curating, blogging, surfing, reading and a whole lot of thinking.”
I Have a Room With Everything, curated by Yanda and presented by Do Not Design in collaboration with AlsoDoMonie, is a brilliant free-to-touch, free-to-browse graphic design exhibition featuring printed materials. If you love print, run, don’t walk, to Night & Day. I Have a Room With Everything is a small show that not only showcases the most recognizable names in design today, but the curator’s passion and dedication to the art, too.
FYI, it closes on August 5, 2011.

If paper, typography, and book binding don’t move you as much as they move me, stop by just check to out 139 Selegie Road, the home of Night & Day.
It’s not often that one gets to see a building this beautiful in Singapore. The Art Deco building has herringbone hardwood floors, mosaic-tiled stairs, wrought-iron window details and inspired graffiti in the stairwells. It’s gritty, dusty, stunning, a little “Lower East Side.”*
*I hesitate to compare Singapore to New York City; these two cities are so different. But we all have our reference points.
