Design for everyone, for everyday.

Meet The Team (1)

Dennis the "GodFounder"

1) What is your role at Naiise and describe a typical day at work.

I'm the founder of Naiise. I mostly do just about everything here. :) A typical day usually means 16 hours of work across all functions of the business. It's a lot of executing and planning!!

2) What is design to you? (In 10 words of less)

Design is for everyone, for everyday.

3) Pick a favourite design/product from the store and explain your choice.

Holstee Manifesto - I believe a lot in pursuing your passion. That's a daily reminder to me why I do what I do and love it so much. ;)

 

 

 

 

 

Amanda the Marketing Director

1) What is your role at Naiise and describe a typical day at work.

I was employee number 2 after our founder, and I now lead marketing and buying! I spend my day coordinating buying, building the brand, and managing our team which has grown quickly in the past 2 months! I also handle Naiise's Instagram account and design all the marketing banners you see on our various platforms, and they're two of my guilty pleasures everyday :)

2) What is design to you? (In less than 10 words)

Beauty, relevance and function.

 3) Pick a favourite design/product from the store and explain your choice.

It changes often as we bring in so many amazing designs each week. For now, it has to be the taco cord holder from This Is Ground - it's a perfect combination of functionality, humour and sleek design.

 

 

 

 

 

LiBing the Chief Editor

1) What is your role at Naiise and describe a typical day at work.

I'm in charge of all things content-related, so the photos (including all these pretty faces you see), videos and blog posts are done by Yours Truly.  Some days I need to look through all the uploaded products on the site, making sure they look good and right! Other days I am running around, getting interviews done and putting them into blog posts.

 2) What is design to you? (In less than 10 words)

Creativity that has no boundaries.

 3) Pick a favourite design/product from the store and explain your choice.

Stale & Co and Stelliyah! (Both brands are by the same people so that counts as one, right?) These folks are big on quality and are extremely passionate about their craft, which really inspires me. If you are interested, read more about them here! You'll know what I mean.

 

 

 

 

 

Li Tying the Project Manager

1) What is your role at Naiise and describe a typical day at work.

I do a little bit of everything, from marketing to ops to customer service to community outreach initiatives to corporate partnerships. I handle primarily "special projects", so anything that doesn't quite fall within the regular schedule or jobscope.

 2) What is design to you? (In less than 10 words)

Design is functionality combined with aesthetics.

 3) Pick a favourite design/product from the store and explain your choice.

Absolutely loving all the items by Woouf!

 

 

 

 

 

Cheryl the PR Girl

1) What is your role at Naiise and describe a typical day at work.

Working at Naiise often means taking on a few roles at once! I work together with media contacts for PR and media outreach, take care of Facebook, do some buying and constantly preach our story! Reaching out to creative people and brands with great identity, and figuring how to work together, is a perk of the job.

 2) What is design to you? (In less than 10 words)

Beautiful and relevant to everyday life.

 3) Pick a favourite design/product from the store and explain your choice.

Recently I've been loving The Letter J Supply's lovely calligraphy and watercolour prints. In an era where almost everything is digital and automatic, it's nice to know that some people are dedicating the time to invest and promote some almost-forgotten arts!

  

 

 

 

Stella the Stellar Buying Manager

1) What is your role at Naiise and describe a typical day at work.

Being part of the operations team, keeping customers happy is of utmost importance to us. Well, I love buying too! Communicating with designers and being able to learn from their very different inspirations, is something I cannot ask for more. More importantly, everything we do is a team effort.

 2) What is design to you? (In less than 10 words)

Design makes life more meaningful.

 3) Pick a favourite design/product from the store and explain your choice.

This is a hard one. I would say Moismont scarf (the one from France I think), as it epitomises Naiise's notion of design- for everyone and everyday- plus the splash of colours just makes everything brighter!

 

 

 

  

 

 

Tian Xiang the Stylish Ops Guy

1) What is your role at Naiise and describe a typical day at work.

I deal with the operations at work daily. Day in day out, I handle matters from packing, delivering, sourcing, bringing in new brands to even handling corporate sales and procurement. Without fail, a cup of kopi-o is all that I need to start my day bright and cheery! Receiving paper cuts and being hammered by colleagues are just some of the gifts in this team. I have a tendency to crack really bad jokes and I earned the titles of Bad Jokes Monday and Bad Puns Thursday.

 2) What is design to you? (In less than 10 words)

Better Design = Better Life

 3) Pick a favourite design/product from the store and explain your choice.

My favourite brand right now would be Mujjo, which uses vegetable-tanned full grain leather and excellent craftsmanship for their products. Who doesn’t like high quality minimalistic designs.
