A Thousand Words
Kuah Jenhan writes a farewell note (as directed by famous directors).
This is a farewell to Esquire’s first and only art director so far, Rebecca Chew. Not long ago, I re-ceived a text from her saying that she’s leaving. Lost for words, I replied with seven emojis (all sad). Rebecca and I are the only ones who have been with Esquire since its first issue, in April 2011.
I admire her work, ethos, and person profoundly but I realised I know little of her. She is a ghost online and a ninja in person. Two things I know of her are that ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meri-dian Response) recordings of people explaining things make her sleepy and that she is the biggest movie buff I know.
So this one is for Rebecca and all the movie buffs out there, with help from a few directors. Fade in!
