JJ Hwang


Design to me is like playing sports. Sports require training, skilled techniques and teamwork.

Playing sports has been a big part of life. I love snowboarding, swimming, hiking, playing basketball, soccer and tennis.

To me, sports is not always about the final score. Sometimes, it is about showing up every day and putting in your effort, your blood, sweat and tears and working hard to be the best you can be. I take the same attitude towards my design and my work. I am not afraid to play hard and to work hard.
