The initial idea of this blog was to capture the design works, progress and little and big things we observed and come across. In general, the focus is on design. Over time, there is a second thought. Regardless the nature of our work, be it design, art, science, music, etc, is the result and the synthesis of an individual or collective mind, experience, relationships, and finally knowledge. We are who we are primarily influenced by the people we relate to and interact with. It’d make sense to dedicate some time and space to the people whom we cherish for and everyday life we enjoy.

However, as we grew up, it’s hard to say every little things and thought to your friends and family due to lack of time, mental space, or physical distance even though technology such as email has made it much easier. Sometimes, it’s just easier to express; record it and let it be. Hope one day the letters will find its way to those that the letters belong to in this cyberspace.

This is the first blog in 2 months – what a shame. It was somewhat busy – traveling and stuff; we are slowly settling down and should get better posting more frequently again.

This weekend is mid-autumn festival. People in Hong Kong/China and maybe other of Asia celebrate for the this festival which i sometimes call it the mooncake festival since many eat the special-made sweet delicacy (note aside: this is probably a Chinese festival but other Asian countries might also celebrate as well). Regarding the graphic, it’s supposed to be a design for a purpose. Despite that, can you tell what the circles are all about? um.. let me know what you think, i’ll add my creative statement later; No it’s not mooncake, c’mon.

In any case, this is one of the few designs i came up with but i think it will remain in the “private” collection – or i’ll need to refine it even though i was originally pretty excited about the initial conception but am not so happy how it turns out… that’s part of the iterative design process I guess; There are a few designs; instead of the last piece, the third one turns out to be the best after all, so we decided to go with it – more on it later.

Happy mooncake festival!
