Who are you :
My name is K Ying Wong
Your current job :
Freelance graphic artist, photographer, videographer, currently studying cinema.
In which city are you located?
From Hong Kong, based in Paris.
A word to define what kind of worker you are :
What tools are essential to your life (app, software, etc..)
My hands, cameras, Adobe software, DaVinciResolve, and Google, etc.
What does your office space look like?
It looks like my bed, I prefer to work on my computer in a stuffed environment like my bed. It’s not rare to find myself giving in to the soft and warm blanket, but the rest of the time I triumph. The proud feeling of being able to resist sleep and continue working on my passion gives me an adrenaline rush. It is also a good way to surround myself with temptations during work, if I repeatedly choose sleep over the work I am doing, it indicates I should rethink about my life.
What kind of music do you listen to when you are working?
In extreme situations, I would choose to listen to brown noise to help with concentrating. While most of the time, I choose to listen to slightly upbeat non-vocal music, especially the music produced by friends. I have recently made cover art for a friend’s new release (Scenario - Cicadas Shell), which is a track that I also like a lot, also nice to listen during work.
Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work?
I can’t say I’m big on this, currently seeking advice or discussion, please email: [email protected]
What tips would you give to improve productivity?
I prefer to feed myself til full in each meal to avoid snacking. Snacking takes up one of my hands and my time, uneasy to stop once started, greatly reduces my productivity.
You're better than your colleagues to :
What is the best advice anyone has given you?
My dad told me water is the origin of life and I should drink a lot of it.
What is your routine start and end of the day?
I can’t really say I have a routine but my day generally starts with music and breakfast and cigarette to think about what to do next and preferably ends with a dessert, if not only a cigarette.
Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go without?
My analog cameras and my Panasonic camcorder
