INHIDEOUT EXC.: “PANDAEYES HANDMADE”
I like being imaginative and creative, and that’s probably the reason why I fell in love with designing and creating different characters. It gives me a sense of accomplishment.
Wen Yi: Well, I used to be working in the day time, that left me no other choices but to work on the dolls at night. Due to this, I often couldn’t get enough sleep and hence develop dark eye rings, therefore I thought “panda eyes” would be a very suitable name for my brand.
What is the design concept of “PANDAEYES handmade”?
The dolls are not just dolls made out of cloth and cotton. Each doll is made with passion, and I specifically design a story background for each doll, hoping to create a sense of resonance between the dolls and people.
Please tell us the biggest problem you have faced regarding the brand.
Ok, once I work fulltime for PANDAEYES, I found that the biggest problem is the brand management. Each decision I make will affect the whole process and hence cause more problems in terms of turning this into my career.
Some of us might not have understood the meaning or value that these dolls bring, is there anything you would like to let them know so they could understand more about handmade dolls?
I believe that the values or meanings of handmade dolls do not come from the doll itself, no matter what materials the dolls are made of. It is important to understand the art of handmaking, the process of designing and its concept behind the brand.
So, can you tell us a little about your life motto?
Stay focused and make sure you stay true to what you believe.
Lastly, is there any advice you could offer to the dreamers?
Don’t assume everything to be perfect, but perfection can be achieved if you have given your 100%.
