    Programme leaflets for the 2020 tour of M+ Rover to local primary schools in Hong Kong. The participating artist is Wong Tin Yan. M+ Rover is “a traveling creative studio that serves as a space for exhibitions and can travel around to different parts of Hong Kong”. It’s organized by M+, Hong Kong’s new museum of visual culture.

    The visual identity of these leaflets represents Wong’s concept of “cut and paste” and bricolage (a DIY-style work made by putting together various on-hand materials). Wong will create an educational bricolage by inviting different collaborators – from musicians to chefs to architects – to join him in the M+ Rover tours. The graphic design also foregrounds the question “Yes But Why?”, the title of the artist’s work. This is the question we want to have in mind when entering the primary school campuses, as it encourages the artist, students, teachers, and M+ team to challenge and explore the world around them.

    The primary typeface for English text is A2 Boing. It’s paired with Noto Sans CJK (i.e. Source Han Sans) for Chinese. Small English text is set in Nitti Grotesk.
