ENG WAH CINEMA R
WE Cinemas by EngWah
E cinemas operates 2 cinemas with 15 screen halls, all of which are strategically located within the town centre of densely populated HDB estate at bukit batok West Mall, and one, lucratively located in Singaporeâ€™s largest commercial and retail complex, at Suntec City. Its target audiences are mainly targeted to people who love watching movies but only when theyâ€™re nearby. The new Engwah identity art direction seemed to be over obsessive with colors. More does not mean better perhaps it does not turn out to look nicer or any better from the previous Identity. Our research has shown why customers does not take Eng wah as a prior. There are still room for improvements.
he problem with Eng wah now is that mostly people would rather travel to a farther destination to catch a movie unless there are reasons like “I’m lazy to go to town” or “Other cineplexes don’t have seats already,lets go Eng wah”. Running a business is not taken to be a substitute. We must be new and innovative. Do and present it glamourously. As also seen from Eng wah website, the contents in it are not as sufficient as golden village or cathay. Eng Wah special attractions unlike Cathay, Film Garde and Shaw. In comparison, Eng wah is not explorative as to other
cineplexes, as in expanding their the cineplexes into somewhere more convenient. The main problem that causes it is the branding! Branding plays an important role in business. The current identity is not prominent as other cineplexes. With all due respect, Eng Wah have qualities and with an interesting background and history, The recent outcome is not much up to standard by far.
Current industry survey The WE Cinemas brand is about embracing originality, creativity and vibrancy.
esigned by THE IMMORTAL Design agency based in Singapore. A job well done in comparison with Eng Wahâ€™s previous identity. However, there is still room for improvement. Kommunik8 had been investigating since then. Stick with us, weâ€™ll explain why.

oth EngWah and Shaw has recently revamp its new identity. Certainly, Shaw has successful rise again in the cinema industry in Singapore. Unfortunately for Engwah,It is still a problem especially lacking of exposure and quite doubtful to last with the new identity.

his was a major re-branding project which involves a full brand investigation, which Eng wah is being produced with a new identity with redesign collaterals. We are trying to emphasize more on advertising its branding rather than movies. Engwah has great potential and promotions but have certainly lack of exposure. With a new revamped branding Eng wah, we identified the demographics and psychographics of our target audiences, having minimal colours and simple typeface to attract wide range of customers.
â€˜ The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.â€™ - Carlos Castaneda.
