Well well! So our Singapore office has officially been in operation for about 8 months now and while the team has been keeping our hands full with building up a firm presence in commercial market, we’ve also not forgotten the importance of engaging with local, upcoming talent and keeping up with the institutions here that nurture and incubate the creative minds of the future.
So we felt it’s quite timely to get a head start as now is the season where a handful of graduation/exhibition shows are taking place. We have always taken a strong interest in understanding and helping with the progress of grassroots talent as it’s the future of current agencies.
While we wouldn’t normally place talent at entry level, we have seen some very diligent and upcoming young creative with strong potential, some of whom would be rising stars to watch out for.
As a note for soon to be graduates, the freelance talent pool in Singapore is seemingly growing steadily and we do notice a fair trend of some students who take internships and project based work on, which definitely adds an extra punch of credibility for when they ready themselves to step into the working world.
