Martin和一幫來自世界各國的朋友一起，在北京從事設計。他們都有相似的想法，想做一些有意思的東西，從他的獲選設計也的確可以看出 – 以隨意而趣緻的網絡表情，給人一種會心一笑的感覺。當然Martin都澄清，自己一定不是坏學生，上課的時候絕不會隨便偷懶，只是有些課程會讓他覺得很無聊。
Martin的設計靈感大多來自他在北京的生活，休閒時他喜歡和朋友們在酒吧一起閒聊，或者去藝術方面的博物館。最喜歡的藝術風格是歐美文化和日本動漫，喜歡的設計師則有很多很多，包括Gregory James,Blaise Coutaz,Matt Palmer,Carlo Giovani,Tan Nuyen 等等… …
Martin and a group of friends from all over the world are doing design work together in Beijing. They have similar ideas, and want to do some interesting stuff. We can tell this from his design being selected - the funny faces similar to internet expressions, which gives people a sense of smiling from heart. Of course, Martin has clarified that he is definitely not bad boy during school. Only when the class is too boring, he will feel lazy and sleepy, and start making this kind of day dreaming.
Martin’s design inspirations mostly come from most his life in Beijing. In leisure time, he likes to hang out with friends, chill out at the bar and clubs, and go to the art museums. He likes the artistic style of Europe and the United States, also Japanese animation has affected him a lot. There are sorts of designers he likes, including Gregory James, Blaise Coutaz, Matt Palmer, Carlo Giovani, Tan Nuyen, and so on……
He prefers to go to Japan T-shirt design websites, and as a new website, Dookaz.com also gets a lot of designers’ praises, including Martin. The establishment of such a platform really helps like-minded people gather and communicate here in the interactive zone. Finally, Martin also blessed Dookaz getting better and better.
