Our First ‘Office’

We started off without a proper office, but that didn’t stop us. Back then, we were churning out projects right in Yi Qi’s backyard!

Slow & Steady

As we were just starting out, we were new to a lot of things and didn’t have a lot of projects. We spent most of our time figuring things out and building up the brand’s foundation.
