It’s a bugs world and we’re just living in it

Aiming to ignite the joy of reading in children through gamification, the National Library Board (NLB) commissioned us to design a logo and all accompanying creative assets for their reading programme Book Bugs X: Explorers of Stories Past. The bug characters were based on heritage stories and folklore, and we created a world for them based on an Asian Steampunk theme, to put our own Southeast Asian spin on an archetype typically associated with western countries.
