Delve into the rich heritage of print culture and ponder its relevance in today's digital age with National Design Centre's latest exhibition titled 'The State of Print'.

Designed and brought to life by award-winning creative agency Fable, the show is an ode to the tactility and nostalgic comfort of print products. Mixing good old-fashioned materials such as post cards, desk calendars and posters with technologies like augmented reality, computer animation and QR codes, the exhibition postulates that the key to the survival and revolution of print lies in its ability to co-exist with digital media.

Visitors can look forward to an interactive experience with a series of stations at the exhibition. For example, at HEY HEY HEY, a collaboration between local initiative Hey, You Got Mail! and various illustrators and artists, visitors can write a postcard to be sent to a senior in a nursing home to brighten his or her day. In addition, local and international partners such as D&AD, Kin Yiap Press and RJ Paper are showcasing winning works, traditional printing methods and presenting Risograph printing and virtual paper making workshops.

On now till 31 July at the National Design Centre, the exhibition is open from 9AM to 9PM daily and is located on Atrium Level 1 and Design Gallery 1.
