I am Oz Dean. Creative director at Digital Arts Network Singapore. I'm also known as forcefeed:swede. Below you'll find WIP elements of current and past projects (which won't necessarily appear in my portfolio). I'll also be blogging about appearances in magazines, books, exhibitions and any topics that relate back to my work. There's plenty more here if you would like to know more about me.

Contagious Magazine

The highly respected Contagious Magazine featured TEQUILA\ Singapore's Okamoto Freedom Project recently in issue 30. To be invited to contribute to such a solid magazine is always fantastic.

Okamoto Freedom Project

This is a campaign I've been working on for a few months now at TEQUILA\ Singapore along with the creatives at TBWA\.

"When it comes to being naughty, Singaporeans are great at covering up, hiding out and keeping things under wraps.

The Okamoto Freedom Project is a range of products that help you get better at getting away with it. So now you don't have to rely on wits and guile alone."

Logology 02

Several of my logos appear in the second edition of Logology produced by the ever fresh Viction:Workshop in Hong Kong. Out Now. Images here >>

Displaying more than 1600 logos from 500 designers worldwide, Logology 2 systematically contrasts the principle theme, structure, composition and palette of the world's latest logo designs under 78 classes. It pictures a wonderland of logotypes, graphic icons, mascots and trademarks that have taken on a new significance to intrigue, explain and instruct as corporate logos, signs, favicons or decorations on the internet or in the real world. Alongside the tremendous showcase are 15 case studies where selected designers walked us through their creative process for the branding and rebranding of businesses, public bodies and non-profits. Branding experts, Frederic Vanhorenbeke from Coast Design and Holger Jacobs at Mind Design, have shared their views and experiences respectively in the forewords for this book.

Logology 2 is a sequel to the highly successful Logology (2007).
