Logo for a public housing agency

Designer
Eng Siak Loy (翁锡礼)
Client
Housing and Development Board
Year
1980

To keep up with the trends and reflect its new directions, Singapore's public housing agency, the Housing and Development Board (HDB), updated its two-decades old logo. The new design was simpler and more streamlined, doing away with the red bricks and blue frame that once surrounded the icon of a home. This was the work of HDB's senior graphic designer, Mr Eng Siak Loy.
