Last year, I had a great opportunity to take part in Fast and Furious 6 at Shepperton Studios. The project involved translations from Chinese to English, designed and produced graphics for print and by hand, as well as assisting the Art Department to decorate the set! Let's just say that by the end of the afternoon, I could stick vinyl print with water spray and a squidgey quite quickly! Never the less, it was amazing to see my artwork come to life and the set definitely reminded me of my other home Hong Kong.
Here are the featured graphics.
It has been a while. Since my last post, work had been hectic. I started Phantom Limb Limited with Jason Arber, acting as Producer, which gave me a chance to experience and develop my ability with project management. So far, we've worked with corporate clients on various animations as well as 2 live action projects. The third one is a recent commissioned short film for Channel 4's Random Act series. So exciting.
No, I haven't hung up my design boots. I am still creating a lot of wonderful things for the fast growing Riddle Box Limited. I also took on exciting project such as graphics for Fast and Furious 6 set.
Will update my portfolio soon...

It is always daunting to make changes. Recently, I decided to restructure my business, not only to diverse the range of work I can provide, but also joint the creative playground of Phantom Limb Limited.
I hesitated to join our businesses together at first as I didn't want to loose the sense of identity I have created with DESIGNBYRINA. However, by joining with Phantom Limb, it doesn't mean I have change my creative directions as such. In fact, as a collective, not only we can increase the variety of products and services we could provide, we also increase the client base as well.
On a personal level, this also gives me an opportunity to experience new parts of a creative business, allowing me to combine my love of project management with creativity together. More importantly, I don't feel so alone running the business now. Yes, indeed, sole trading gives me the flexibility and a sense of freedom but two brains is better than one when it comes to strategies and decision making.

A year ago, this little lady came into my life. The first time I met her, she was only 6 days old and just fitted on my palm. Today she has grown into a proper lady, caught her first bird and taken up half my bed space. She is now a permenant fixture in my office and I love her so much. Happy Birthday Arabella.
