A little bit of nostalgia

I was clearing up my email from years and years ago and I found these two pictures of me. Thought it'd be fun to just post them up here.

Meeting other designers

Last Friday morning, I met up with one of the owners of a design studio in Rotterdam. It has been my goal for the past couple of months to get in touch with as many design studios I admire as possible, to expand my network and increase the possibility of getting a great job when I need it (or when it's available).

I was a little nervous because, well, you're showing your own work, your pride and joy and personal ability, to someone who should know better than you if it's good or not. I was just so thankful that it wasn't a job interview because I'd be ten times more nervous!

It went well, the guy was super friendly and he'd even been to Malaysia many times for diving, so there was some common ground. In the end, I'm relieved and happy everything worked out and I got positive feedback. I hope it gets easier the more people I see.

The Thinking Designer

I've created a new blog - no, not to replace this, but a blog for my design stuff. I like to separate work and personal life.

In this case, Tumblr works really well, because I don't want to write too much, and Tumblr is just made for that.
