Blog Layout Redesign

It's always been a struggle between form vs function—whether to make something visually stunning or easy of use. Sometimes both worlds harmonizes, but more often there's a need to compromise. Of course, it's never polar—there's a long spectrum on where you can lay down your plan for the visual execution. And...


Progress Report + Top 10 Pioneers

Work may be hard, but finding a place to work shouldn't be. With the joint effort of our Pioneers, we have added 965 locations across 28 countries. It's not earth shattering, but it's progress. Slowly, but steadily, we're making it easier (even just so slightly at the moment) for the people to...


We Don’t Fly, We Levitate

On May fourth, while people are celebrating and reposting their favorite joke for the occasion, "May the Fourth be with you," we had a spontaneous collaboration. From ideation, discussion, to execution and publishing in less than 3 hours. The rollout was like an iced cold Corona on the Miami beach—just perfect.   The Spark Connor, a...


WHA Patch Design Process

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This product was not a tacticful-company-goal-oriented decision. It was rather a selfish one.

With the birth of WHA, this turnout to...

WHA Trips—Maldives—Day 1&2

I've done a bit of traveling this past few months around Asia. Of the many destinations, the most notable would be my honeymoon trip to Maldives—the ultimate honeymoon fantasy land according to many, my wife included. I was skeptical, though. I knew little about Maldives except it's slowly sinking and the price...


Design Matters—WHA App Design Process

While the idea and functionality of an app are critical, we're at a time where design and form begin to weigh more heavily. The plethora of calculator and weather apps exist not because of their revolutionary idea, but for their beautiful aesthetic and ease of use. The audience and users want more than...
