Hi! I’m Shaw!

I always believe: “the best way to predict the future is to create it". My curiosity of what is emerging has created my passion for constant creativity in design. Bringing end-to-end thinking into my design is also the reason why I am curious about the logic and story behind things.

In life I love to use my camera to record what I see with aesthetic. A photograph, an image, has taught me how to tell a story, and the power that visual language gives to design has kept me passionate about this career. These connections lead me to constantly innovate in my designs, never stopping there.
