*Full-time* working on myself at the moment ~ I decided to quit my Design Lead role at a corporate company to recalibrate and remember what matters to me the most, which is not letting my creativity and soul fade away in exchange for just money and uninspiring work environment.

I want to live my life more fluidly, intentionally. I've always been intrigued by stories of individuals leaving their jobs to seek a more fulfilling life, and I'm now experiencing that for myself. A wise man once told me (Hey, Marty!) that allowing myself the space to grow and reconnect with my true self confidently will pave the way for a much brighter future.

A couple of people have said to me that I'm lucky to have the opportunity to take this time for myself because they "can't" and truly, that's made me feel sad because I believe that we're entitled to prioritise our personal growth and wellbeing too. The idea that we "can't" seems to be a prevalent mindset, and I believe that we need to shift that thinking 🙏

Working on Issue 011 of the WARKITCHEN magazine, covering everything nutrition, gastronomy & lifestyle. If this sounds like something up your alley, feel free to browse through previous issues @ https://www.warkitchen.net/magazines 🥂

P.S Loved reading what everyone else is up to! We're really living in a world where the possibilities are infinite. In my opinion, social media is one of the greatest inventions ever made! We're living in a sliver of history where it's possible to make just about ANYTHING a career. If you're an artist like me, or just have a general affinity to all things creative, I urge you to start leveraging the Internet to showcase your talents! Who knows? In a year or two it might be the greatest decision you've ever made.

Have a blessed week ahead ladies & gents 🍸

My partner and I, a duo of concept designers/art directors, launched a post-pandemic hospitality research to pinpoint customer expectations vs experience. In an essence, we’ve been living in hotels since June 2022 because that’s what researchers do — put themselves in the lab 🫡 You can see behind the scenes of our research on KleinMoosatov.agency/research. Also check out our newest hospitality branding client — instagram.com/chihotels in Bangkok. Come visit! 🫦

Hey! I'm working on a 52 weeks project this year. It's a typographic project inspired by the powerful global spirit of the sixties. I'm creating a type-specimen as a magazine while playing with the best culture and characters of the decade. You can find it on Instagram, but I'll build a website someday. https://www.instagram.com/agu.segui/

My fiancée and I are taking our whole wedding party to Miami for vacation in May as a twist on the traditional bachelor/bachelorette weekends. I'm currently working on a little hype box to mail to everyone before the the with a personal note, some old photos of us together, probably a little something from the Vacation shop too. If anyone has any other Miami-themed small gift ideas, I'm all ears 😄

Examining Artificial Intelligence, the Human Condition, and Everything In Between. My latest:

All I know is that we as a species dance on an ever-narrowing tightrope to a rapidly-increasing beat. As the acceleration and velocity of our progress increases, our ability to make sense of what we make and how it can be used decreases.

The more we achieve, the less we reflect.

The less we reflect, the more we lose ourselves.

The more we lose ourselves, the more we risk our peril.

After all, the metaphorical Doomsday Clock sits at ninety seconds to midnight.

Every Napoleon has his Waterloo, even angels can fall, and multiplication by zero nullifies all.

Helping build https://blockapps.net . We think that blockchain can help transform any business it touches. Currently my position offers me the joy to work with startup founders and help gain their companies alternative revenue streams to offer their products to our customers. BlockApps has many use cases including art, financial services, and e-commerce related products. I am always eager to talk and help expand a founders offering.
