Name: Chomon Praditpolpanich (Onn)
Occupation: Graphic Designer
1. Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?
I graduated from Kingston University, UK, with a Master’s Degree in Communications Design and have been working as a designer in an advertising company in Bangkok for 9 years.
2. What’s a typical day like for you?
A typical day starts off with work at my full-time job; craft work is done at night. During the weekends or my free time, I usually go in search of new materials like beads, new color of stones, or attend workshops on jewelry and craft to expand my knowledge and skills.
3. What got you started in this field?
I've always been fascinated by the unique shape and form of stones.
I love to play around with colours, mix them not only with other stones but also wooden beads, rope, metal beads, and sometimes other materials.
4. What is your greatest inspiration and why?
Everything is my inspiration. Life inspires me.
5. Any advise you would give to budding designer?
Be yourself and play with a cat :)
6. What's your favourite piece in the entire collection?
I don’t really have a favourite piece. Because the character of the bracelets I design is about being fun with its colourfulness, they work best when they’re together.
Thanks for your time Onn - see you again soon in Bangkok!
