About curiouszhi design

Hello! I'm zhi aka curiouszhi. I work in technology and investment banking by day but spend my nights on pursuing my passion in graphic design (especially paper goods and stationery!). I love thoughtful, typography-driven design and illustration. I also maintain a design and lifestyle blog to catalogue my design work and inspirations.

Zhi, I just wanted to let you know that the comment you made on my Downtown Abbey was not taken in a negative way by me. You passed your opinion on that design & maybe you're right/may be not. I was over-worked on that design & ( if you noticed ) that's not my style,I wanted to try a vintage type style for my own learning & betterment,so that design was a guinea pig in itself! We all come from different backgrounds & as far as I'm concerned,I'm a formally trained graphic designer but due to motherhood I've been away from my passion for 10 years now & designing at Minted is like starting from scratch. Thank you & my apologies if I ever gave you a wrong impression of any kind :) x
