NEX is one of the largest malls in the North-East region of Singapore. This 7-storey mall is positioned to be the vibrant, social and recreational hub for the North-East community. NEX has placed the responsibility of handling its social media presence to KRDS Singapore for the second year in a row.

The goals for 2018 was to generate brand awareness and create a unique identity for the mall on Facebook and Instagram. KRDS Singapore was able to achieve that by leveraging trending and topical content and collaborating with influencers like Dee Kosh and Preetipls.
