Singapore social media agency launches Lee Kuan Yew image library

LKY imageA social media agency has teamed up with the Organisation of Illustrators Council of Singapore to launch a library of images of Lee Kuan Yew, the citystate’s founding father, who passed away this morning.

The website lky.goodstuph.org features a number of illustrations of the former prime minister that are available for non-commercial use in social media. They are free to use.

“We recognise that there aren’t a lot of stock images available for use, so we thought we’d put the art by Singaporeans out there for everyone,” said Pat Law, boss of Goodstuph.

To use the images, the artist’s name and website address must be disclosed. The images are only available for use in social media unless the artist is contact directly, in which case they are available to be used in print.

“Should you choose to use our art, we ask you do so tastefully,” the website requests.

Brand owners have been struggling to find images of LKY they can use for their websites and social media to pay tribute to the man. Most images are licenced to Singapore Press Holdings, the government archives or LKY’s book publisher.
