Outside my 9-to-5, I'm a pro bono art director at Slant'd, a creative collective that celebrates Asian American identity through personal storytelling.
In 2017, I designed the inaugural issue of their print magazine (160 full-color pages, offset printed, perfect bound). The Kickstarter campaign to fund the magazine's production was backed by over 400 people, and the fundraising goal was achieved in less than 36 hours. Due to the overwhelming community response, Slant'd went on to publish a 2nd issue in 2018 and is currently producing its 3rd issue, which I'm continuing to spearhead the design & art direction for.
