Naiise conversations - Introducing Statement
Naiise Speaks to the team behind the wacky designed Tees we love. Here's what they have to say.
Who is in the Statement team and how did Statement come about?
We love your designs, can you describe the signature style of design?
Who is the Statement girl/man?
The Statement woman/man is someone who is not afraid to express herself/himself and challenge the status quo.
What were some of the driving influences for your designs?
Daily conversations and observations of the environment/people surrounding us.
Name some of your everyday essentials.
Any favourite brands/designers?
Apple, Tesla and Stefan Sagmeister.
Describe a day of being in Statement?
There's no 'day' in Statement as we currently have our full-time jobs (we happen to be in the same company too). Whenever we discuss ideas we're always open to experimentation and improvisation, which is super exciting. There are times when customers share photos of themselves wearing our t-shirts all over the world, which never ceases to surprise us.
What is it like being a designer in (Singapore)?
Why is great design so important?
Great design is not just how it looks, but also how it works. It should be functional and not get in the way of what you actually want to do. It is the designer's job to ensure that the design meaningfully serves the user. Great design is so important because every user out there probably wouldn't want to spend time/energy fixing bad design on their own.
