I'm Cindy Shon

I have a small altar filled with clutter. This came to be after rummaging through the aisles of my local thrift store, energized by unexpected finds. Over the years, I have steadily added to this ever-changing altar with various items such as trinkets, brooches, and vintage children’s books. Some may overlook these items but I find them intriguing, especially once these ideas come together. I memorize the details of their unique shapes, textures, and imperfections and wonder about the valuable memories they each hold. They are reminders that beauty exists even in the most unexpected things. Catching these details is crucial in weaving together a unique narrative. To me, designers are just treasure hunters: we have the ability to see and collect inspiration, to create something greater than the sum of its parts.

Driven by design, passionate about storytelling, and enthusiastic about problem-solving, I aspire to make the world my personal thrift store. However, instead of looking for glass bottles or vintage books, I uncover new narratives through motion graphics, visual identity systems, and illustrations.
