Slash, a coffee shop by day and speakeasy cocktail bar at night, carries an inborn spirit of duality, an endeavor of seeking adequate balance and harmony between brightness and darkness, sunshine and moonshine, caffeine as stimulant and alcohol as depressant.

The juxtaposition encapsulates Slash's spirit of duality, with the support of color and material palette tributing to the surrounding Prince Edward neighborhood, a hood with its rigorous yet ambiguous, undefined beauty.

Mapping Cultural Heritage
Public Lecture Series Spring 2020 | HKU Architecture
Public Lecture Series Spring 2020 was an event series organized by HKU Department of Architecture. Planned as a sequel of Fall 2019 series, the visual identity is rooted from the once distinctive now gone urban landscape — the smeared protest graffiti along the streets of Hong Kong, half a year since the social movements have started in this city. After the "cleaning" some of the protest messages became obscure but some became more prevalent to the public, as the "brushstrokes" unintentionally highlighted the messages and created an unprecedented "art form". The ambiguity marks the midpoint of the progress when something was yet to be erased, and something new is yet to come.
