The Competitors

Bruce Mai

Bruce Mai is an interaction and visual designer at Idean, where he designs experiences for user needs, behavior, and interactions. He has an obsession with boxes and arrows and pixels and typography, and is fascinated by how abstract, intangible concepts can tell a story. You can probably find him eating kale or climbing boulders.

Natalie O’Connor

Natalie O’Connor has been an in-house designer in Dayton, Ohio for just under five years. Color coordination is one of her keys to success and hanging out with paper-sample books makes her happy. In her spare time, she works on the things she’s really passionate about, which are craft beer and spreading happiness. She does this by designing for and The Good Deeds Project.

Christopher Knowles aka Christo

Christo lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He’s been bouncing around doing freelance creative work for a number of places in the big city for the last six months. His work is an extension of himself and a connection to others, so he strives to devise design capable of connecting a world of unique people together — design that extracts from a variety of mediums to provide solutions for a variety of clients.

Lidia Lukianova

Lidia Lukianova was born in Ukraine, raised in Germany, and currently residing in California. She studied graphic design at the RheinMain University in Germany and has worked as a freelancer since 2010. Her design solutions are driven by reason and appealing to the soul. Inspired by Russian Constructivism, German Expressionism, and Japanese minimalist design, her work emphasizes the use of white space, clean typography, bright color, and visual metaphors.

Kevin Kwok

Kevin Kwok is a graphic designer with a focus on interaction design who currently works at frog design in San Francisco. He is an avid follower of technology and basketball, and is a Star Wars fanatic. In his spare time, he enjoys watching movies and playing video games, and runs a Los Angeles-based printing business, Legit Print. Kevin has previously worked at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where he designed graphics that are currently on the Mars Curiosity rover.
