What everyone's up to

Founded a new company
Built a Magento store
LOOQ was planned to be a direct-to-consumer eyewear brand in Asia. My role included overseeing web and mobile app design and development. Sadly this project was put on hold due to external factors. A great many lessons were learnt during the early stages of this startup, some of which are:
  • Market research is the absolute first step in any new venture. It doesn't matter how cool you think your idea is.
  • If your expertise does not suffice, hire a freelancer with the skills you need. It will pay off in the long run. 
  • Just because your competitors use a certain set of tools/tech stack, does not necessarily the same will work for you. 
  • Creating a physical product is so cool. Enjoy the process!
