On-Demand Economy

@ VOL 27 ON APR 14, 2016

Zhe Wang shares about the on-demand industry: there are many products people don't want to buy or services they only want to pay for when they really need it. This is called the on-demand economy. You don't want a car, you want transportation. You don't want a beach house ... well, you actually do want a beach house, but you can't afford one, so instead you'll hire one. But you get where this is going.

Diseñar desde el corazón consciente

@ VOL 2 ON APR 28, 2016

Papusa nace de mi necesidad personal de conseguir franelas y ropa que fuese un poquito más distinta a lo normal, hace 4-5 años que empecé a hacer esto. Mucha gente dice yo no compro aquí sino cuando viajo o lo que sea, también pasa que cuando consigues ropa acá es muy normal que sea en tiendas donde los tirajes son muy grandes y es común que te puedas conseguir lo mismo en muchas personas; entonces eso no me gustaba para nada y empecé a vestirme muy unicolor, hasta que en un momento dije ya va, si me gustan los estampados y yo quisiera un estampado qué me pondría, porque eso de llevar una marca encima jamás me ha gustado, para llevar una franela que tenga una marca gigante en el pecho me tienen que pagar, gratis no hago publicidad, entonces dije a ver qué me pondría yo, qué diría yo, cómo lo haría yo y empecé a pintar a mano esas franelas unicolores.
