MAY THE HORSE BE WITH YOU

(Happy Chinese New Year)

Hi. I’m still alive. Many things have happened since my last post. I have graduated (done with my final year project!), and am currently working at pill & pillow, a digital design studio.

I’ve been having trouble balancing work with all the stupid personal stuff I used to upload here. But it’s not like I’ve stopped entirely —  I’ve actually been fairly active over on Facebook and Instagram, and the reason this blog has been so neglected is because I saw it as a “proper” site to be maintained rather than a dumping ground for every visual thing I did.

But I guess I was being too perfectionist/protective about this tumblr’s “quality”. So here’s some horse shit.

My graduation project is done*, and I’m back from the grave. Hi.

In other news, I went to Tibet for 22 days.

More photos to come (I’m on Instagram by the way).

*Not entirely. It needs extensive polishing for the upcoming exhibition.

Happy Chinese New Year!
It’s common practice to write the word “fortune” onto a diamond-shaped paper and put that on your door for Chinese New Year and what I’ve done here is that I turned it into a  star shape thus implying another common Chinese New Year greeting/phrase “May your star of fortune shine bright and far!” you know what never mind the joke is not that intelligent to begin with and the translation is just making it worse happy new year you guys.

My portfolio is finally live. I’m no programmer, but I did my best to create a layout that displays reasonably well across different screen dimensions, as well as to introduce a degree of sophistication to how the text is laid out. This blog remains the place with the most current stuff I’m up to, but the portfolio gives a nice overview of my work.
American designer James Victore once spoke in an interview that doing a compilation of his work was like packing his old stuff into a box. It was the only way to move on. The interviewer teased him by saying that publishing a book was the exact opposite of hiding things in a box, to which he pretty much laughed and shrugged.
Joking aside, I think it says something about how one looks at his/her past. On one hand, I do kind of tire of certain old pieces of mine, sometimes not because of its quality, but simply because it’s “old news” (what that says about the timelessness of my designs I don’t know, heh). But for me, in a way, to get rid of something in my mind is to put my creations out there. So there is an interesting “keep it private/public”, love/hate relationship there.
It really is the only way to move on. And that I’ll do.

These are pictures taken a year ago, when I went to the Hong Kong Apple store with a friend to have my Macbook fixed. Before it went viral, I actually tried distributing the design the old-fashioned way. People took pictures, but stickers were gone the next day, and nothing became of it. But no matter: it blew up online anyway, around this time.

Long before this happened, I already planned to study in Germany for 6 months, so it was an exciting year for me regardless. But not like this, no.

Apple. Coke. Cannes.

To think it all started with the passing of a man.

(the promise I made to myself)

I don’t crop. I just zoom into my screen real big.
