As a graduate of visual arts, Chan Po Fung can’t get used to being a regular commuter. Alternatively, he took a tougher road and spent two years to seek for a creative path that he feels suitable. He found himself having different identities in different occasions, but the identity is always mismatching with what he expects. In this talk, he is going to share his career path: How he started from making handcrafts to having a business – setting up his design studio and his own brand, and eventually figured out his creative direction.
