"Labels" is a creative self-discovery project that features my efforts of proving myself against the many labels that have been attached to me over the years as a person, a student and a designer.

This project is about revealing my side of the story and showing evidence of my statements.

In a way, the project also marks a poetic finish to my 4 years in design school. From my early years of relying heavily to complete dependence on digital graphics and typefaces, this is a journey back to the basics. Featuring hands on craftsmanship and physical prints.

And my story, be told in mediums that reflects the truth of it.

"It's like I came into this world, being me, just me. Each day, someone or something puts a mark on me. They take something from me, & leave something behind. At the end of the day, I may be decorated, honed, or polished, but no one knows how much of myself that I've given up to be like this."

"I hate being insignificant. To be unnoticed & ignored. Design saved me from that."
