Creative DNA

What word or phrase would you use to describe your creative style or approach?

Fun and playful

Past & Present - Cringe!

Remember what it was like when you started? What work have you done that makes you cringe now?

I used to do graphic design work in Photoshop instead of Illustrator at my first job as a designer in BT. This gave my colleagues a headache as the some of the ads turned out blurry XD.

Do you have any advice for freelancers or those starting out in your creative field?

The creative industry in Brunei is generally a passion over profit career so it may take some time before you reap the rewards of your hard work. In any case, just persevere and do what you love, love what you do.

Oh, time management and self-discipline are extremely essential too! Being self-employed means having to choose between a fun weekend outing with friends or finishing that damn last minute deadline.

    Past & Present - Cringe!

    Remember what it was like when you started? What work have you done that makes you cringe now?

    Every cover/dance I’ve been in from this, and earlier ><

    I’m very self critical now so seeing these makes me want to go back and fix everything T.T

    Do you have any advice for freelancers or those starting out in your creative field?

    I don’t get paid, but I love doing what I do and through dancing, I’ve met so many people that I’m happy are in my life. For dancing, it’s hard to become well-known (especially in Brunei), so don’t be discouraged that you aren’t getting noticed and learn to use dancing as a way to focus on one thing or even exercise :p

    As for the scribble animations or editing, you learn as you go. Sometimes it’s tiring and tedious but it pays off in the end.
