Sim is our family member since Year 2008 and counting. Recently taken up the role of Junior Art Director, we managed to grab 10 mins from her back-to-back datelines to share with us how life has been working as a creative one.


What do you like most about design? Any area(s) particularly like? Why?

That there’s no one solution to every design problem. Website design & painting because these are the most familiar to me. I would like to try designing spaces & objects in the future :)
Describe us a bit about your creative process while creating a digital design.

1. Find related and unrelated references.
2. Marinating the ideas.
3. Trying the ideas (if short timeline, skip this step).
4. Choose idea & execute.
5. If doesn’t work, go back to step 3.
What's would you consider the best moment day-to-day and what would be the worst one?

Best: Eating lunch
Worst: Long meetings out of the office on a busy day / Food coma after lunch
What's your favourite media to work with and why?

Pixels and acrylic. Pixels because they’re precise and controllable. Acrylic cos they smell good.
Tell us three websites that you like to visit.

Hello @ Taiwan

Nov 21, 2013 11:29 PM Posted by XiMnet Malaysia , , ,
Our Chief Alchemist has decided to bring all of us to Taiwan after a year of hard work. Our 4 days 3 nights (15 - 18 November 2013) trip to Taichung - Taipei was truly blissful.



Besides the cooling autumn weather during this time, one must not miss the street food hunt as well as shopping spree in a few renown night markets around Taipei.



Thank you Chief, and we are looking forward to do better in Year 2014 so that we can fly even further! Cheers to the challenges and opportunities which are yet to come.
