Zinegapore: The Irreverent, Alternative Guide To Our Super Clean, Safe And Efficient City

What is it?

It’s irreverent, it’s alternative, it’s a guide to Singapore! ZINEGAPORE is an interactive e-zine for iPad that was made for “Singapore: Inside Out”, an exhibition that toured the world.

Why do we need another travel guide
 to Singapore?

Our country isn’t just very clean, very safe, very efficient or very green — the real Singapore is more than big, glossy facts and figures. We believe the heart of Singapore lies in the little everyday things and norms, our funny quirks, our warts and all. And it is these that readers get to discover in ZINEGAPORE.

“A refreshingly honest, highly irreverent app to navigating everyday life”
