Snippets of my life, behind the scenes work, and thoughts.

Fresh Creatives

My first time making a pattern! I had a lot of fun designing and spacing out the characters. The idea behind this is a tin full of different creatives and the creative process—art, photography, production, collaboration. It really reflects my experience at Production Road, an awesome little studio that I’ve been working at for the past year comprised of Chairman Ting Industries Inc., Hubert Kang Photography, and LEMONNI (a pattern designer that inspired me to create my own pattern).

Fresh and Organic!

I recently wrote about my experience at Production Road in Chairman Ting’s blog. It talks a lot about how I was a lost student not knowing what to do. Heck, I was just gonna lock myself up in an office doing social media and analytics all day. Now I’m doing art. Yay me.
