MY CREATIVE JOURNEY

THE TIMELINE



2014 - 2015

This was my 11yr old YouTube Minecraft squeaker letsplayer phase, and also when I truly discovered the joy and pride of creation. At this point in time I still had no idea what I wanted to do in life, but I quickly began to realise that it had to do with creating.



2015 - 2020

I discovered Hyun's Dojo, a high-calibre stickfigure animation community, around late 11/early 12. Something about watching stickfigures viscerally murdering each other was very appealing to my young hyperactive self. I googled "how to make stickfigure animation", found a program called Adobe Flash, and became completely obsessed with animation for the next few years, learning many of the skills I still apply to this day, particularly with motion graphics.



2020 - PRESENT

This time period marked a major transition for me and has led to where I am now. I slowly moved away from animation and onto digital art and graphic design. I realised that I enjoy variety and seeing things moving at a quick pace, and animation did not feel fulfilling enough as it tied me down to a single project for a long amount of time. As such, I moved into honing my digital art and graphic design skills in hopes of finding a field that will offer me greater scope, while implementing many of the skills I had already learned from my 5 years of animation.During this time period I discovered a major apprecation for creative brand identity, design, and marketing as a whole. The idea of an organization comprised of multiple people having its own collective, distinct personality that people can associate with seemed fascinating to me. Having a background in digital art, I quickly became interested in how businesses convey this personality through visual and interactive channels, such as videos, graphics, and websites.This intrigue quickly grew into enthusiasm with my first ever experience building a brand with ARCH-MOD, a passion project I started on April 2023 selling hand-customised watches. From developing the logo, graphics, website, and design language as a whole, to learning product photography and running social media accounts, I enjoyed every stage of it.My long-term goal in life is to start my own brand in a field I'm passionate about, such as horology or clothing.
