Militarising a graphic designer is a series of visual ideas that formed during the first 4 months of my military service in the Army of the Republic of Singapore. In the Republic of Singapore, every Singaporean son is required to serve the military for 2 years. When a conscript completes his full-time service, he is considered to be 'operationally ready'.
This zine was inspired by the experiences of my basic military training and the nonchalance of design in military and government sectors that I had observed in the military.
The zines were bound by multiple staples, inside-out to attain a rugged and prickly spine, in a way similar to the concertina wires on fences surrounding military installations.
