Royston Tan – Old Romances

A sequel to Old Places, Old Romances is a collective documentary of personal stories voiced by fellow Singaporeans about the nostalgic places in their hearts.

The DVD packaging follows the same format as Old Places. We designed a logo for the Chinese title "老情人" that was reminiscent of a traditional Chinese stamp. Images of floor tiles found in heritage shops are featured on both the cover and postcard designs. When tiled together, the postcards form the title "Old Romances", printed in turquoise to give it a faded, worn-out effect. Turquoise was chosen as the main colour for the packaging to complement the colourful Peranakan-inspired tiles.
