The CCA—Centre for Contemporary Art is a research centre of Nanyang Technological University (NTU), developed with support from the Singapore Economic Development Board, officially opened in October 2013.
The CCA embraces artistic, academic and scholarly research, and views contemporary art as a form of knowledge production in its own right. Through a holistic approach, the CCA’s three main areas of activity—exhibitions, residencies and research—are intertwined and feed into each other, shaping organically the profile and programme of the institution.
We were commissioned to develop their brand identity ranging from their logo, stationary & marketing materials as well as way-finding systems. During its inaugural phase, we also designed a series of materials to promote the “Free Jazz” events, a series of programmes where creatives, cultural producers and intellectuals come to improvise together and contribute to the thinking and envisioning of the potentials for this new Centre for Contemporary Art.
