WITH just a year of working experience and at a tender age of 22, Priscilla Tan already knows "there are a lot of factors and abilities that a designer should have, other than just the skills set of designing". She cites the ability to communicate with people as an example. "I want to be able to relate to people or let others relate to me, be it through content, a story or an idea," she says. "I hope that as I grow as a designer, I can create products that carry these intangible values. These products not only can be created as a documentation of life but to inspire others as well." Ms Tan aims to do this in her job as an associate designer with Supermama, a local design firm-cum-retail store.

The company is currently working on a new product label with Japanese fabric producer Maruju. Ikue, the new product label, will launch its debut collection Animal Camou, a line of six baby items, such as bibs, blankets and towels. The collection will be launched at the Japan Interior Lifestyle fair in Tokyo in June.
