Singapore

Singapore is changing fast. As a nation, it is on a path to an ambitious and future-facing digital transformation while continuing to grow as a regional hub for ASEAN countries and Asia more broadly.

For ThinkPlace’s fast-growing Singapore studio, these themes – so integral to the continued importance of the city-state – are inextricably bound to our own rapid growth across 2018 and beyond.

Selfies get a bad rap.

If you believe what you read, they are responsible for a global rise in narcissism, risky behaviors occasioning death and the damage of public property.

During a recent project, one of our user testers—I’ll call him “Mark”—said something that struck me. We were reviewing the accessibility of an online tool and Mark, who is blind, said: “Meeting accessibility guidelines isn’t just for a person with a physical impairment. It also helps someone who experiences anxiety or someone whose first language isn’t English”.

 

Mark’s words reminded me that accessible digital design benefits everyone. It creates more inclusive content, capable of reaching a wider audience.
