Handle with Care

The Lexical Gap
Publication design, image-making: digital print, hand bound volume, screen print on textiles, hand dyed textiles, 2019.

I am a research-led graphic designer currently exploring experience design, publication design and art direction.
Through prototyping and experimenting, I trial both established and unconventional techniques of craftsmanship. My practice involves storytelling and searching for an appropriate narrative to investigate during my design process. Through this, I seek to understand the human condition and its environment.
I use design as an instrument to make sense of the world.
