Hey there!
My name is Aiken Lao and I'm an illustrator and designer from Vancouver, Canada. Although I specialize in art and design, I also work in marketing strategy and project manager/producer roles. My unique background in both design and business allows me to create work that can be communicated to your target segments on multiple platforms.
In my spare time, I like to bake, hang with my dog, and travel. I'm an avid reader and food lover but am terrible with directions as I once got lost walking straight. I'm passionate about all things art, design, and overall anything that is interesting and new. If you're confused as to how my name is pronounced, it rhymes with bacon.
