Howdy . Hey . Hola . Hi

I'm Paojia

Currently a Toronto-based design student in my final year of study in the YSDN (York Sheridan Design) program.

Having developed a strong passion for all things print and explored some of the many processes it encompasses has greatly influenced the way I see and approach design. The intricate connections people make with physical objects of quality gives a satisfying sense of luxury and novelty. Designing with and taking advantage of different material and printing method combinations has become the main drive for my design and design thinking. I think products and outputs that feel tactile and invite the urge to grasp and touch create a powerful imprint on an audience. This allows for a more whole and intimate understanding of a message or concept; aiding in the creation of successful design and takes full advantage of the opportunities, purpose and concepts print-based design brings forward.

Always in search of creative and inspirational environments to become immersed in. Currently interested in further exploring user interaction and experience design within print. Outside of design I enjoy exploring buy & sell shops, frolicking around Toronto, wandering the outdoors, experimenting with various crafts and crochet, immersing myself in physical creative processes, and being a full-time cat and plant mom.
