Experience

Playground

I take doing other things aside from my day-to-day a big part of my creative process. I’ve learned to accept that burnout can happen no matter what is your level of experience, and diversifying what you’re working on can help in keeping work fatigue at bay.

Here are some samples from my experiments, random ideas, and trying out different things for self-education, and sometimes for fun.

Codepen

Despite focusing on design, I enjoy playing CSS and making things that I randomly think (e.g. Aeropress from checkbox). I achieve a different level of satisfaction whenever I get to develop the designs I made; some of the shots here are even written without an initial design. I hope you get delighted as much I enjoyed making these.
