Hello stranger, I’m Kaitlyn Chai aka. “ohlookitsafox” on the interwebs. I am a multi-disciplinary designer and illustrator using visual media as a tool for storytelling and empowerment. My creative process often includes using a childlike imagination to invoke a sense of humor and feelings of nostalgia. I work across various creative disciplines and I’m constantly experimenting with different practices to expand my understanding of design, and its role in our society and popular culture.

My project Let’s Be Kids Again! is a continued exploration of sparking human emotion and nostalgia through visual media. It is based on quirky experiences we all might have had as kids. As grown ups, we often forget what it's like to be a little rebellious and playful. We take life a little bit too seriously and the stress off it all often kills our creativity. This project aims to remind us of what it's like to be unapologetically idealistic and to let our minds wander to places where things are not always practical or “realistic”.
