ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Who do you design for and what is your style?
My design process and interests are always evolving but I think right now my work is very relaxing and sophisticated while still maintaining a certain amount of playfulness. My designs are available for licensing or purchase for a wide variety of markets, though at the moment I'm aiming them towards children's and everyday gift, paper and home decor products.
What inspires you?
I love botanical gardens! I'm also very fond of animals and comedy so whenever there's an opportunity to combine the two (or to just be influenced by them) I go for it. Book cover designs, mid-century modern furniture and graphic designs, current web design, local libraries (both for their atmosphere and their architecture), and cinematography in movies like Hanna or Her are also things I find inspiring.
What do you love about being a designer?
I love the ability to constantly experiment and try new styles or layouts. There's really never an opportunity to get stuck doing the same old thing which in turn allows me to evolve in the way that I see and interact with the world around me.
Where can you be found/what are you doing on your days off?
Well like I said, I love to visit botanical gardens! I also enjoy visiting breweries with friends, finding new places to eat Pho or boat noodle soup, listening to audiobooks, and catching up on my DVR=).
