She ditched teach­ing to open a cre­ative stu­dio and hasn’t looked back.

CLEO (Singapore) - - ADULTING -

You run Honey&gazelle, a graphic de­sign and event styling stu­dio. What kind of ser­vices do you pro­vide?

Be­sides our re­tail line of pa­per goods, we also han­dle graphic de­sign, mar­ket­ing, brand­ing, and event styling projects. We’ve also been knee-deep in de­sign­ing and styling for wed­dings!

How did you get into de­sign, and how long have you been do­ing it for?

I’ve al­ways been in­ter­ested in de­sign, doo­dling, and be­ing cre­ative in gen­eral, but I never re­ally pur­sued any­thing for­mal un­til I be­came an art teacher a few years ago. It was then that I re­alised I wanted to ex­plore the world of art and de­sign in greater de­tail, so I quit teach­ing to open my own stu­dio.

What has been your most chal­leng­ing project so far?

Last year, we de­signed and styled a wed­ding where the only cri­te­ria from the bride was to not use any flo­ral mo­tifs or dec­o­ra­tions. We went all-out with veg­gies and ap­ples, and suc­cess­fully turned the cer­e­mo­nial lo­ca­tions into lush forests. It was chal­leng­ing but our ef­forts paid off as the cou­ple loved it!
