Lyn Ong

Visual Designer, Popfolio Network

Lyn used to be in the visual effects industry and worked on Hollywood movies for three years after graduating as an Animation major. Deciding to take the plunge, she took up an internship at Poskod.My, and her career path took on a series of twists and turns before settling as a visual designer.

Kit

Visual Designer, Popfolio Network

Kit was once a sweet-faced designer dabbling in icy desserts, overpriced hand creams, heavy-duty feet covers and several socially-aware projects. He's still a sweet-faced designer, except now he helps make Popfolio look good (trust him when he says it beats overpowering scents and smelly boots). When he's not whipping visual magic, he's off travelling somewhere in search of spiritual guidance and a good 'ole session of people-watching.

Qayyum Jumadi

Associate Producer, Englishjer

Qay goes by many names, because not many people can pronounce "Qayyum" properly - but his ideas and perspective are as diverse as his pseudonyms (according to him). Graduated law but passionately in love with media and writing, half of his time is spent explaining to relatives why he chose to not be a lawyer. He tweets a lot too at @Qayzr.
