Ripples: KTAP 10th Anniversary
The Keppel Technology Advisory Panel (KTAP) was established by Keppel Corporation in 2004 with members consisting of eminent business leaders, professionals and industry experts from across the world. Together, they form a key platform to advance Keppel Group's technology leadership. To celebrate its 10th year of establishment, we were tasked to create a commemorative book to be given away to past and existing members.

This keepsake publication would encompass brief insights into KTAP, its members, and key issues that the panel has raised over the last 10 years through essays, testimonials and profiles of the members gathered from their secretaries and close personnels.

Over the years, KTAP members have contributed to a broad range of ideas and developments in Keppel. The areas include drilling and production technology, offshore wind, coal gasification, waste-to-energy, as well as potentially disruptive technologies—all these with a main mission in mind to create a ripple effect of innovation throughout the Group and the industry at-large. This is where the book's theme took inspiration from.

We sought to craft a book that was both striking and modern—to off set any of the "heavy reading" of its content, which were more academic in nature—and also created simple graphic elements to represent the ripple effect that KTAP has had and will continue to have on the technology industry for years to come.

A wise man once said, the difference is in the details.
We think the difference is having the balls to do it.

Bureau is a design studio that provides businesses and brands with a creative hand and a solid sack of ideas. We believe in stretching the boundaries of graphic design, while maintaining a strong commitment to artistry and quality in every work that we do.

Occasionally we experiment with other design forms such as furniture, spatial, and product design. Traditional techniques like letterpress and silkscreen printing get us excited as well.

We sometimes get mistaken for a book shop. Or Nana & Bird. But that’s okay, because we're friendly, unless you owe us money, of which is the entire reason why we have a rack of guns in the studio.

Get in touch.

We‘ve recently moved out of Tiong Bahru, so we're no longer sharing a space with Nana & Bird. We now call the Bukit Merah district our new home, right in the heart of Redhill. Find us right across the famed ABC Brickworks Market & Food Centre. As usual, spot the gun rack.
