What do you hope to gain from your education in California College of the Arts?
I hope to broaden my perspective of the world, strengthen my foundation in design, and equip myself with the skills and capabilities to look at problems with business and organisational acumen.
When your foreign contemporaries ask you, what would you say is representative of Singaporean design?
From the moment visitors touch down at Changi Airport till the moment they arrive at their destination in the city, they will experience the efficiency of Singapore: service excellence at Changi Airport, well-designed transport system, a glimpse of quality public housing, and a city clean, modern and beautiful. These are the outcomes of well-considered, well-thought through systemic design.
How do you intend to contribute to Singaporean design?
As a practitioner, I would like to help businesses be more innovative by making greater impact in human-centered design. As part of the Singaporean design community, I hope to keep developing my skills, share my knowledge with my peers, and guide younger designers.
