Herworld (Singapore) - - TO KNOW -

Her big­gest project this year wasn’t judg­ing the D&AD Awards (“It’s like the Os­cars of de­sign”) or the Ky­oo­rius De­sign Awards. Nor was it her sponsored-by-Sam­sung work with The So­cial Co. to cre­ate aware­ness for Alzheimer’s dis­ease. Or the on­go­ing project to re­brand sec­ond-gen wood­work­ing com­pany Roger&sons. It was her two-month-old daugh­ter, Rei, whom she and her hus­band, Arthur Chin, adopted in Oc­to­ber.

“We ap­plied to adopt last year, and Rei came sud­denly in Oc­to­ber this year. We had to quickly turn a room for her.

“I am plan­ning to cre­ate and com­mis­sion some art­works for her room, and relook at our stor­age sys­tem since we now have a new ‘house­mate’ with dif­fer­ent needs.”
