I am an interdisciplinary designer: of looks and things, of experiences, and everything in between, a line to connect dots. My best (and worst) quality is asking, "Why?" I have my foundation in communication design both digital and print, but have been recently expanding more into products and experiences.
Currently I am a pilates instructor with a bunch of design projects on the side to keep me happy.
I am super interested in small team projects that are experimental. I love research, and I love trying new ideas to see if they work. If this sounds like your jam, or maybe you just have an idea but need a designer to help execute, give me a shout.
A robotic bar. Dispenses cocktails via peristaltic pumps. Bottles sit in laser-etched box of acrylic, water-sealed. Juices sit on top with flow mechanisms using gravity. Luma-droid, inspired by lights and retro arcade games. Collaborated with Eric Boyd.
Hacklab.to launched an indiegogo campaign to fund their move. Pledgers got swag, special pledgers got their name on a plaque. Designed T-shirt, stickers, mug, and plaque.
Designed specially for Toronto Makerfest, these little guys could be found in the maker kids section. Children learn how to solder LEDs and a battery holder to create their own spaceship or snowbot.
A different way of viewing visual works. Gives user seamless macro + micro view options. More chaotic, better for the unpredictability of viewer behaviour. As you delve more in depth, all else fades away.
Personal cards meant to convey meaningfulness in a highly commodified holiday. Gives me an opportunity to collaborate and use different materials to re-define the card. Also, pure fun to make. (2012, 2013 with Kevin King, 2014)
New York-based independent theatre company needed a full makeover for their play, The Heart's Impatience. Website, playbill, poster, illustration, and letterhead. Illustration is acrylic on paper.
Misty vase. Glass vase with oscillating humidifier and LEDs.
Pi board. Laser-etched on wood. Pi to the 4626th decimal.
Collaborated with Eric Boyd.
I am always open to meeting interesting people. Email me and we can talk about cats. Here is a picture of my cat! Also, I'm semi-active on Twitter, so you can message @KhuyenF and we can be buddies.
What am I listening to right now? Dance-y indie. CHVRCHES, HAIM, Kimbra, uh oh, that's a lot of females.
