Last month, I had the privilege of documenting Door to Asia: Bataan for the Design Center of the Philippines.
A quick background: Door to Asia is a designer-in-residence program with Bellas Artes Projects in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar. It started in Tohoku, Japan as a way to connect designers with local companies in disaster affected areas. They brought it to Bagac, Bataan with graphic designers from Japan, Indonesia, and Philippines to see how design can contribute to their homegrown small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and the community.
