Our first collection ever, the "Mandarin Collection": Chapter One was inspired by our founder's journey of moving from Taiwan to Seattle when he was 13:
Chapter one of this collection is meant to promote cultural awareness using words that I love from the two languages. When you look at my designs, I want you to see that it is a complete composition, not simply one English word translated into mandarin of the same meaning. It is rather the seemliness connection between two of the most used language in the world and how they can be combined through art & illustration. I want to promote cultural awareness and encourage people to connect with unfamiliar cultures.
My designs are drawn by hand then translated into vector files on a computer. These mandarin characters are not the common typefaces you see from other clothing brands, rather they are written in an original way.
