"Politics and culture are closely intertwined here. Satire plays an important role. It is necessary to prevent people in the capital from becoming too pretentious and affected. I would say that the principal trait that makes Thai design stand out on the international stage is its sense of humour. Everyone loves to laugh, it makes them feel better about themselves."
Also known as Pink, Chatchanok Wongvachara is a young designer from Bangkok. She is currently in her fourth year of studying creative graphic design at the Faculty of Fine and Applied Art of Chulalongkorn University. Although she grew up in an artistic family, and was given a lot of guidance by her father and her brother, she enjoys finding things out for herself and experimenting – by combining illustration elements with photography, for instance, or employing handicraft techniques in her work.
