This is the fourth time Singapore’s identity has been revamped, but this time, it will market the nation to both tourists and businesses. Other statutory boards and agencies under the Ministry of Trade and Industry will also adopt this branding when reaching out to international audiences.

This new campaign also comprises of a series of films to show how Singapore represents “Passion Made Possible”. Check it out here.

Assistant chief executive from the marketing group at STB, Lynette Pang, said: “This time we wanted to start inside out. We wanted to hear what Singaporeans believed in and wanted a brand that reflected what Singapore is today. It needed to stand for a belief and attitude.”

So is the new branding really what Singaporeans believe in? Some netizens gave their stamp of approval by complimenting the stunning cinematography and content of the campaign’s videos.

However, most netizens have been shooting the new tagline down, claiming that it does not represent Singapore at all.

Netizens brought up how contradictory the slogan was when it comes to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Singapore.

Interestingly, it was also pointed out that the slogan sounds sexually suggestive.
