It was a slow day in the office, as we were recovering from our recent event at Baobae's 1st Anniversary Party. I was just sitting down to get a head start in sorting out my new collection of business cards, posting photos into my Facebook and start putting likes to the new small companies that I have just met such as Eight Little Canaries, DFN Studios and Raphael Audrey.
Then I noticed an interesting movement popped up in inbox on Lil Nika - Fun By Design Facebook page containing a new message and also a new 'like'. To my surprise it was from Time Out HK Magazine, and I couldn't believe my eyes!
Rummaging through my keyboard to get to my trackpad, I pressed click!
The message was from Arthur Tam, a brief yet specific, asking me to bring my products into their office for a photoshoot within the same week!
I was very nervous as I did not know what to expect, I brought them in, but to my disappointment, the author was not there. Then I was told to leave the products in the office and to pick up in the next two weeks.
Two weeks later, voila! Please click on the link below to see the article online:
I finally managed to speak and to meet with the author, I found out that Arthur Tam received information from us from Ignacio from Tangram. Arthur Tam searches the city for several unique toys that’ll have tiny tykes smiling and adults reminiscing their childhood. He wrote; "These fun, geometrically shaped animal toys are locally designed by architect and mother, Akin Jabar. Jabar was inspired by her own children to develop creative and sustainable objects that maximise play potential. The cute multi-functional toys can act as a night light, table lamp or mask for kids to role play with. Both Oma the Lion and Emi the Elephant are made from 100 percent recycled plastic."
Thank you Arthur, Ignacio and Paola! Muchos besos!
