Welcome to my blog. This is a place where my love for Jesus and design intersects.
Design has such a broad meaning today. It can be applied to architecture, interiors, technology, products, fashion and graphics (to name a few). Graphic design particularly, is the area I’m most interested in. Within it, there are so many different areas of specialisations. Whether it’s branding, typography, motion graphics, web design, illustrations, print or digital design, they’re just some points of interest you’ll find in this blog.
Essentially I believe that design is where beauty and form meets function. There’s an inherent practicality with design that art is not obligated to commit to. To me, design and art while they overlap, they are their own separate fields with their own schools of thought. Design often caters to a need and innovatively problem solves accordingly.
Moreover my faith in Jesus underpins all of my work, whether it’s overt or seemingly non-existent in the designs I create. My motivation, the ideas and the energy to create all comes from my relationship with God. The process and end result is only ever satisfying if I have first prayed over the design itself and who it will impact.
I believe design has the responsibility to serve. With the work I do, it is to serve God, and it is to serve the nations, and to serve people like me and you.
Quotes I’m loving.

“I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.”John Adams

Some random facts about me.
My favourite colour is apple green.
When I was 8, I decided that I had to choose one colour for the rest of my life to be loyal to.
I love to watch movies.
In particular, I enjoy animated ones. Contrary to others in my generation I actually prefer the newer Disney movies e.g. Tangled.
I like anything salty.
Whether it’s sushi, eggs or hot chips, savoury food is the best.
I’m a homebody.
Being at home is my safe space!

The blank pages gives me less pressure to stay between the lines.
