Unveiling the 2022 RJ Calendar

Since 1992, the RJ Calendar has been a symbol of RJ Paper's family-like warmth, generosity and grace; an unwavering commitment to the transformative power of paper, print, craft and design. Through the years, the RJ Calendar has been designed by a wonderfully talented and dynamic roster of local creative companies, designers and artists - printed in limited quantities, but shared as openly as possible.

The legacy continues. Reaching beyond what is a printed calendar, we aspire to uplift the hearts and minds of all who receive one. OuterEdit is honoured and grateful to have been entrusted with the 30th Anniversary edition of the RJ Calendar. Continuing this tradition into 2022, we are absolutely thrilled to share this joy with you, and hope that you find as much delight in the calendar as we did in making it.

OuterEdit’s ‘Street of Clans’ shortlisted for President*s Design Award.

We're excited to share that 'Street of Clans' has been shortlisted for 'Design of the Year' for the President*s Design Award 2020. We had the privilege to share more about the design ethos and impact that Street of Clans brought to our community to the team of local & international P*DA 2020 jurors and we're happy with getting this far in the process.

"We recognise OuterEdit's efforts in boldly inviting young designers to be a part of Street of Clans, and using new and novel methods to showcase and explore local clan associations' culture and heritage."

"As I stood alingside the interactive installation my team and I built within the Koh Clan, lively conversations between the clan memebrs and members of the public unfolded around me. Nearly a year on, I still think abou tthe energy and impact of the festival - where else can you find such a beautiful marriage of cultural heritage and design?"

Pixie Tan, Creative Collaborator

"Being the champion placemaker for Chinatown, Singapore Tourism Board (STB) appreciates the efforts put in by OuterEdit in portraying Singapore beyond a modern metropolis. Street of Clans is a testament to houw a festival could contribute to an authentic Singapore story with rich heritage and culture."

As a local boutique creative agency, it is an honour for us to have been shortlisted for this award, and is an encouragement to us to continue making meaningful matter and promoting the age-old clan values of 'kinship', 'unity' and 'lending a helping hand' through our work and our community.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the DesignSingapore Council and the P*DA jury panel for shortlisting Street of Clans, and our heartiest congratulations to the other shortlistees & winners.

#URL to IRL

The past months of isolation brought by COVID-19 have created a shared experience that has made us feel so alone, yet at the same time, so connected to our friends, family and community around the world. Amidst the chaos, there have been opportunities for introspection, and for the more creative ones, an avenue to explore and uncover new ways to redeem some sort of normalcy in our lives. ⠀

While we are all different, we are all people united in our individual attempts to brave this storm and we have invited creatives around the globe to share personal insights, musings, things and moments that have uplifted them while facing the challenges introduced in each of our lives by the COVID-19 global pandemic.⠀

Through this initiative, we hope to stand united with the global creative community to celebrate and support each other as we attempt to navigate these new and uncharted waters together. Communication has never been easier; allowing us to connect digitally via a series of URLs, and we hope this unorthodox interview will let others relate with each other in deeper and more candid ways, beyond the glossy exteriors of our portfolios, as though we were meeting as friends IRL. ⠀

A big thank you to everyone who has supported and participated in this initiative from near and far.
