Please tell us yourself and your recent activity.

I graduated at the School of Communication at the Hong Kong Baptist University and have become a graphic designer since 1998. In 2004, I had a chance to join the Visual Communication Department of FABRICA, the Benetton Research and Communication Center in Italy for one-year residency. In 2005, I co-founded milkxhake with Wilson Tang as one of the most energetic design collective in Hong Kong.

Recently, I am working for a very challenging project, to redesign and art direct a local design magazine based in Guangzhou in China, which will be launched in Jan 2009. I take care all art direction and layout design for a total 200pages magazine.

Please tell us about your city, and how about living in your city for yourself/activity.

Hong Kong is a very tough place to live to be honest especially doing purely graphic design. The super high rent and small living space always hinder opportunity for young people to establish their own creative happenings. People here are not still understand the substance of design and they are quite superficial here. It is easy to become a generic graphic designer here but it is extremely difficult to do local quality works.

Please tell us a favourite places in the city you live and work in. It can be anywhere – a street corner, an art gallery, a shop, a hot-dog stand, anywhere fantastic, weird or just essential, that would be of interest to a tourist or visitor to your city. (And please tell us why you like this place in particular.)

We have lots of so-called “cool” places around here but just on superficial level. Some shops in SOHO are interesting but you couldn’t easily found small shops by local designers. For me, I really like BASHEER bookstore in Causeway Bay, a very good place selling all design books and you can flip all books at the store!
