  project?

 

Just do it.

Over the last ten years or so, I’ve made a habit of maintaining at least one side project at any given moment. Those side projects have served a couple of purposes: 1 - Learn new things: Trying out a new technology, a new field, or learning a new skill. 2 - Build something: It’s nice and fulfilling when you can show your product to others, or take a look at something and know you’re the one that created it. 3 - Refreshing: It’s a great way to get out of your comfort zone and do something different from your day job. Just do it.

I have always been drawn by haiku poetry being fascinated by its power to communicate that particular moment in time, and a sense of sudden illumination or enlightenment, despite its simplicity. The perfect illustration of "Be here, now" - live the moment and the moment only...

I was looking for a truly simple icon system and I couldn't find one so I decided "to design" one for myself. I agree it is not the most appealing one but I am very pleased with it and I am currently using it. Simple and straight forward. Just text.

Noticing they were still using a marker pen to brand their bachis, I teamed up with the Kumo team to design their first hanko as a small reward for their techings. It was a fun collaboration, they are very cool, open-to-new-ideas guys. Thank you, Jeane and Jean :)

The toki (adze) was a chisel tool used by the Māori people of Aotearoa (New Zealand) to carve their great canoes and carved detailing on their meeting houses. A symbol of courage and strength in times of adversity, toki were worn by Māori elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority. You cannot simply buy one, it needs to be gifted to you by someone else.
