Who wants to try? Me! – Painting an umbrella in Chiangmai, Thailand

Who wants to try? Me! – Painting an umbrella in Chiangmai, Thailand.

Thanks for visiting my DesignSpotlight blog.

I am a freelance designer/reporter based in Singapore with an interest in graphic and product design, architecture, art and crafts.

I started this blog as a place to save some stories that I have written when I was a trade show reporter in Thailand.

In that few years of filing stories from Bangkok, I met many interesting people at all the major trade shows — manufacturing, jewellery, giftware, packaging, metalwork, agriculture, farming, food, fashion, energy, paper, plastics… etc. While my focus was international trade and Southeast Asian SMEs, I often came across entrepreneurs who were doing interesting things.

To those who were creatives themselves, I would probe a little deeper about their work, their backgrounds and how they got to where they were.

Off duty, I also saw many noteworthy stuff — interesting places, buildings, art, crafts.

Over time, I added a bit here and a bit there, from my travels or an event here in Singapore, and that’s how this blog came to be.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading it.

Feel free to drop me a line if you have a question!
