Hello. I'm Jacky Liu, a design enthusiast. I work as a creative/interaction designer in Hong Kong. Whenever I can, I like to write about design, technology & the environment. Occasionally I also throw ideas together into a section I call lab, or be doing photography.

You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Flickr.
