Neon Moiré Show with Ken Lo

In partnership with Graphic Matters, we bring a special serie of interviews with researchers, designers and thinkers who presented their work during the graphic design festival. Graphic Matters, founded in 2008, shows every two year how designers shape and influence our perspective on current issues that matter. With the slogan Visual stories you care about, Graphic Matters presented work from over 200 international designers. Through the exhibitions, talkshows and workshops Graphic Matters challenged the visiter to create their own image.

In this episode of the Neon Moiré Show, the third in this serie, Thomas Dahm talks with Ken Lo. Ken Lo is a Hong Kong-based graphic designer, who runs together with his wife Purple the design studio Blow. During this live broadcasted conversation they talk about how Ken Lo became a graphic designer, family and his project More Hugs by Ken Lo which is presented in de Valkenberg Park in Breda, during Graphic Matters. Check out the project here.

I think everyone should make use of their time. Think about time. It’s like animation, if you are using animation you can go back to the first frame. But life you can’t rewind. You can’t go back. So every moment is the moment. You need to think about time. What are you doing? Just ask yourself what are you doing now, and then you give yourself an answer, and just do it. Don’t waste any time.
— Ken Lo
