How to Die for an Ant

Good Friday and Easter is never just a holiday for me. While others are exchanging greetings of "Happy Easter holidays!" or "Happy Good Friday!", the truth is, these days are a time of sobriety and solemnity to me. You see, I've never (and…

The Stove that Lost its Fire

The stove in my kitchen stopped working a year ago. It used to work really well. With just a turn of the knob, we have fire coming out of the stove. Not anymore. Well, it still dispenses gas but it needs to be manually lit with a spark gun.…

Time & Money

One of my friends forwarded me this email about time and money and I thought it was wisdom worth sharing. Gave my life a good, long, hard look to see where I stand. What about you? 1. No point using limited life to chase unlimited money. 2.…

I've always wanted to buy my own house. Several times, I toyed with the idea of doing so, calling up agents to view houses for sale and so on. But somehow, it never got me anywhere near getting my own house. Currently, I'm renting from my…

Steven Who?

There are certain people in life whom I wish never existed. Come on, be honest about it and stop judging me like I'm the only one who thinks that way. I know I can list a whole page (or probably a few) of these people. But I thank God, that…

The Grace for my Todays and Hope for my Tomorrows

"Mom, I'm so glad you raised us up as Christians. I just can't imagine life without Jesus," I blurted out one day when I was having a conversation with my mom. It was a genuine statement, not meaning to condescend other religions or beliefs,…

Fruitty Business

I have failed. Again. After two years of much restrain and self control, I went berserk yesterday and roared at the delivery guy who made me wait the whole day for him, falsely accused me of not being home and was utterly rude. Technically speaking,…

The Thankful Complaints

I complain about being overly busy, occupied with work and barely have time for anything else. In my busyness, I can still manage to login to Facebook to keep in touch with loved ones, get almost seven hours of sleep everyday and share the same…

The Dispensable Traffic Light

When I go to work, I pay RM1.60 at the highway toll. But when I return, I avoid the toll by using a small back road. Not many people choose to use that back road because it's quite windy and the roads are not exactly in the best condition (unless…

My name is Aaron Lam (also known as Aaroink) and I am based in Kota Kinabalu, Borneo (Sabah), Malaysia. I am a freelance Graphic Designer (who does provides services on graphic design, layout design, Desktop Publishing, Branding, Corporate Identity, Logo Design, Business Card design, Letterhead design, Label design, Packaging design, Web Design, Merchandise Design, Advertising, Banner design, Billboard design, Book cover design, Brochure design, Catalog design, Menu design, Wedding Invite design, Wedding Card design, WordPress Web Design), Illustrator (illustration, drawings, hand-drawn), Typographer (typography, calligrapher). More than just 2D design, I work a lot with printing methods and finishing too, such as
Spot UV, Hot Stamping, Gold foil, Foil, Emboss, Deboss, Matt Lamination, Glossy Lamination). I worked as a part time lecturer teaching on Graphic Design, Typography, Computer Graphics (Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator) and Design Management classes. My name is Aaron Lam and I am a freelance Graphic Designer, Entrepreneur (I own a clothing line called Individium and designer’s collective store called Supermart Collective) and I use to be a Lecturer (teaching subjects such as Graphic Design, Typography and Computer Graphics). A perfectionist and creative thinker by nature, I hold high ideals about design in the media world. My designs usually speak loudly of my beliefs and philosophy in using visuals to engage and impact the audience. I believe design and creativity can be used for a greater cause. Through the years, I’ve discovered how design can speak louder than the world’s most convincing communicators and change the lives of others who crosses its path. I want to use design and creativity to feed the poor (and I am using the terms “feed” and “poor” very loosely to refer to meeting the needs of others). “With great power comes great responsibility.” Design is my God-given power and to contribute to the lives of others is my responsibility.
