Hello, my name is ...

Post by .alson on Fri Aug 08, 2008 7:03 am

Hello, my name is Alson Kaw, I'm a 18 year old graphic designer located in Singapore, I'm also the creative director of PixelRebels, a local prints, design, hosting company. I have 4 years of experience in the graphic design community.

Currently, I'm working in a company called Edible inc. Not to be confused with Edibles Inc (They make edible foods with greeting cards). Our current project is to develop a new blogging system called LifeStream and we're naming the application we're building 'SweetCron'. Examples of SweetCron can be found at YongFook.com and AlsonKaw.IsaJerk.co.cc.

I call myself a graphic designer first and foremost, if only to impress the girls, yet I have skills and passions in many areas of computing, internet, design, usability and troubleshooting. Okay, I lied a little. I'm not passionate about troubleshooting but I seem to have a mind that's tuned to that sort of thing. The bit about impressing girls is true though. It happened once.

I have been called a simpleton and while that might sound boring, I like to make all my designs as simple, practical and logical as possible and if I manage to make them look great too then I feel I've succeeded. I'm really not a 'wow' kinda guy, but I do create stuff that works nicely and looks good. To quote Charles Mingus, "Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity".

I'll be honest here, I love computers and the internet. I spend a good portion of my day in front of the screen, designing, researching and sometimes just mucking about. Ever since I was 10 and I was given a Sega Genesis gaming machine I've been glued to the television. Amiga's various PCs (Windows) MacBook Pro. Oh mighty MacBook Pro, how I fancy thee.

But, aside from the geek stuff I do allow myself to get out and about too. I like walking around, exploring and taking photos with my trustee camera phone and playing basketball. I'm definitely not an enthusiast photographer as you can see from my tools of photo taking. Music, hanging out with my mates, drinking and eating, watching movies, learning Chinese, traveling and composing songs with fruity loops pretty much sums up the remainder of my time. However, that might all change when I get my paws on a Playstation 3.

What is the story on that happening once? And i like to help people with troubleshooting and things of that sort too. I get asked to help people around my neighborhood all the time. But when people ask what i like to do its basketball and graphic design.
