So what's next?

We started this competition because we knew that if we wanted to save the shop, we could not do it alone.

The competition was a way to help us see the possibilities.

We are excited, encouraged and humbled, after catching a glimpse of the shop's future through everyone's designs.

Going forward, we will be working with the 1st Prize winners, Edmund and Hao Jie, to try and turn their design into an actual product!

Pls follow our Facebook and Instagram pages to stay updated.

In the meantime, we have a small favour to ask: We would like to know how you might use the winning design, after it is brought to life. Would you display it at home? At your office? Would it work as a gift? Or as an educational tool for your kids?

Please let us know by completing this 1-min survey

Thank you once again!

Special thanks

to our sponsor for making this competition possible.

And to our judges for taking time from their busy schedules to support the designers who participated.
