Autotypography is a year-long project conducted between 16 June 2012 and 14 June 2013 with a graphic poster created daily, amassing 365 posters in the collection.
Initially conceived as an experimental ground for typographic and semiotic play, the project evolved to take on a more inquisitive and speculative approach to investigating graphic design fashion and trends. The project has been featured on over 50 sites and publications, such as DesignObserver's article Critical Graphic Design: Critical of What? in 2014.
The project also served as curricular case study material in various colleges such as University of California, Los Angeles - Design Media Arts (UCLA), Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), Singapore Polytechnic, in workshops like Studio 13/16 22RUEMULLER (By Groupe CCC) in Centre Pompidou, Paris, and as submission guidelines in poster festivals like TypoMad from Madrid, Spain.
In October 2018, more than 5 years after the project concluded, Autotypography was displayed in its entirety, printed and sponsored by HP, in Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore's group exhibition Dissolving Margins; alongside artists Camille Henrot, Eng Kai Er, James T Hong, and Tara Kelton.
