triggerhappy is Winston Chai and John Chan.
triggerhappy is a studio which questions and explores opportunities and possibilities through design. Initiating projects with relevant companies and organisations, we develop and implement unconventional yet powerful design solutions. Delving deep into the context of each project, our work is defined by meaningful designs with a humourous approach.
Our design projects are triggered by everyday phenomenon, social issues, market needs and environmental concerns. We take the initiative to approach companies and stakeholders to collaborate and explore new possibilities in design to bring about a sense of wonder.
Collaboration is a key component in the way we work. We gather and work with other designers and individuals on projects, creating a dynamic working system. This confluence of creative individuals brings about unexpected and progressive design solutions and ideas.
