Remember the dinosaur motif pouch — designed by Pathlight student Seetoh Sheng Jie — that made headlines after Ho Ching carried it as arm candy while on a visit to the White House with her husband Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong? Well, if you didn’t manage to get your hands on one after it immediately sold out, fret not, ’cause the print is making a comeback — this time on EZ-Link cards.
Launched as part of a collab with Pathlight Artist Development Programme (ADP), the Dino Series is a way for EZ-Link to promote the inclusion of individuals with autism and celebrate their talent in the arts, the company said. This limited edition was debuted together with the Singapore Shophouses Collection.
Both series go on sale today: The Dino Series ($8 each) is available in six colors, while the Singapore Shophouses Collections — designed by students Glenn Phua, 21, Jonathan Cai, 14, and Muhammad Khairul Bin Asmi, 19 — is sold in a set of three ($15) and features local architectural landmarks. From August onwards, the latter’s cards can be purchased individually at $12, with a $7 value.
Part of the proceeds from these sales will go to ADP to fund programmes that aim to develop their artistic talents. Student artists who designed the cards will receive royalties as well.
You can also check out public art exhibition Art of Autism: All Things Singapore at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore from now till the end of August for more works by ADP artists.
