Semi Permanent 2018

Semi Permanent is a global creative and design thinking platform based on Sydney, Australia. Each year, they throw a live event that celebrates their community of over 400,000 community members.

For 2018, the theme was “creative tension as inspiration”: moments of positive and negative friction that come before a breakthrough. Director Joyce N. Ho was tasked to explore this theme in her opening titles—inviting Worship to join a global team of designers and artists she curated to create the typography for the sequence.

Inspired by Ernst Haeckel’s work, the titles delve into a microscopic world and brings to life the real beauty of this unseen world.
