Retro effects and old school cool is what keeps his designs on trend. We chop it up with Kakin Mah about the influences that inspire his creations.

To me designing alphabet is not just a mere coincidence. I spend much effort in spotting the types of work that’s purposeful and through my experiences working in creative advertising agencies, constructing alphabets for masthead or logo were one of the most common jobs for a graphic designer. I saw potential in it and hence decided to create my portfolio solely based on typography and alphabet design.
