Blogging

Aside from all the digital designing, I also like to blog every so often on subjects I find near and dear to my heart. Below is a comprehensive list of blog posts that I have written, both of my own accord and those I have been paid to write. Need to read a post comparing Pokémon Go to Postgraduate study? Got you covered! Have a hankering to question the conventions of modern animated shorts? You came to the right place!
