Glowing Embers


Junior Creative

How did your interest in design start and who/what inspires your work?
I used to really admire music album covers and I wanted to design them too. I guess that was how my interest started.

For me, inspiration comes from everywhere—the people around me and the places I go. When I was still in school, I’d browse through different art books and zines at Basheer Graphic Books for inspiration, but the trip would often end with me spending money on them (laughs).

You’ll be turning 21 soon! What’s the biggest life lesson you’ve learnt thus far and what are you looking forward to as a full-fledged adult?
To trust my own instincts and take the advice of others with a pinch of salt.

Honestly, I don’t know what being a full-fledged adult really means and I sometimes still feel like a teen! All I know is that I’m looking forward to the new experiences that’ll come my way, but definitely not the lesser nap time and paying for bills.

If you could pursue something in life without failure or the need for practical considerations, what would it be?
I’d be a professional tai tai by day and an underground rave DJ by night (laughs).

If you won a million dollars today, how would you spend the money?
I’d travel to space if I could but I don’t think a million dollars will be enough for that. In that case, I’ll probably travel the world and collect zines from every country I visit. I’d also get more treats for my dog, Craky, and set up a creative studio with my partner, Vegas.

Tell us more about your fur baby.
Craky is a three-year-old Chihuahua and Silky Terrier mix, although we’re still unsure of his breed because he doesn’t look like his brother at all. I love lying in bed with him but sometimes he takes up so much space that I can’t rest properly!

He recently started stealing socks from my room and skedaddling away to unroll them, so I think I’ll start getting him a bunch of socks instead of toys since he always destroys them so quickly.

What’s something not many people know about you?
I tried film scoring for a friend’s short film once.

It’s pretty different from music production. I loved how it challenged me to think of different ways to elevate films through music and focus on how to help viewers immerse in different narratives.
