This book commemorates the 20th anniversary of the National Committee on Youth Guidance and Rehabilitation (NYGR). As it is about the NYGR’s achievements in rebuilding the lives of youths in the past decades, Tuber proposed the use of a graphic novel style to drive the book’s editorial and design direction.
Graphic novels – in any language – have always been a popular medium for young Singaporeans. Not only are these graphic novels entertaining and enthralling, they also help young people explore the complex issues that they grapple with in (love, family, friendship, work life etc) in a less daunting manner. Graphic novels have a way of enabling readers to imagine and empathise with the situation of the protagonists.
In line with the concept, Tuber drew on the client’s case studies, scripted and illustrated seven graphic stories to give added prominence to NYGR’s success stories. The eye-catching stories gave the otherwise corporate book a significant “lift”, enabling us to deliver yet another unique product to our client.
