THE FOUNDER AND DESIGNER

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - Feature -

Jack loves plants, so a close friend An­gel bought him some plants and cacti from Cameron High­lands. “I was awestruck the mo­ment I saw those suc­cu­lents. I would never have imag­ined those shapes, forms, and colours would ap­pear on plants!” ex­claims Jack. It was at that pre­cise mo­ment when he dis­cov­ered that they were in­deed real that Jack knew he had signed up for a life­time com­mit­ment. It was dur­ing Jack’s col­lege years that op­por­tu­nity arose, to cre­ate some­thing re­lated to plants. As it was for a class on “set­tin­gup-a-shop” con­ducted by Amy Ng from Pika­land, Jack also had to think of ways to sell his cre­ations. “Thus, Jacktus and ev­ery­thing that came af­ter was born,” says the designer-cum-il­lus­tra­tor who de­signs whim­si­cal pots based on the shapes of dif­fer­ing suc­cu­lents and cacti. In a way, the cacti com­pletes the de­sign of his pots. Jack may be a designer for his day job, but he is also an il­lus­tra­tor and writer once he gets off work.
