Co-founder, K+, Kinetic Singapore
Addicted to design, advertising, and communications, Pann Lim is challenging how people think about creativity, -- founding more design companies than the number of houses the average person will own in their lifetime. Named the country's Most Influential Creative Director by the Institute of Advertising Singapore in 2012, he is the co-founder and creative director of Kinetic Singapore, K+, Holycrap.sg and Rubbish Famzine and the lead guitarist of the indie rock band Concave Scream, which he co-founded in 1994. With over 450 local and international accolades to his name including President’s Design Award in 2013 and 2015, Gold Pencils at New York One Show and Cannes Lions, to say that Pann has Midas’s golden touch might just be an understatement.
His love of design, however, might be outweighed for his passion to give back to his community and foster talent. He’s a founding member of The Design Society, a non-profit organization that aims to educate, proliferate and archive graphic design in Singapore. Together with his wife and two children, Pann also started the art collective Holycrap.sg.
