Bryan Angelo Lim

Founder And Design Director of Qu’est-Ce Que C’est Design


MANIFESTO
My pursuit in the realm of design comes in tandem with my deep interest in Asian cultures, particularly the values, symbols and meaning expressed in through their visual art, ritual and daily life. Considering the symbiotic relationship of form and function, my design process insists on the rigor of being fully immersed in the subject matter and understand its intricacies and nuances. It is through which that design can then emerge from within to embody and express the content and meet its needs.
