I'm Jessica Tan.

... and I am a Singapore-based art director who experienced four years in Shanghai, dabbling in Chinese advertising, tone deaf karaoke sessions, and spicy greasy food. I spend 80% of my time at work staring into space (that's my default look when I am actually thinking of ideas) and the other 20% cajoling my peers.

Right now when I’m not busy churning out ideas at work, I churn out pottery pieces for my space at @nankanpottery.

Feel free to hit me up for any collaborations, grab a pint, or just to say Hi at

Brands I worked with: Sephora, Clarins, Louis Vuitton, Etro, H&M, Taobao, Starbucks, VitaTea, IKEA, Audi, Samsung, Shangri-la Hotels & Resorts, AirAsia, Aprica, Singapore Tourism Board, etc.
