Spotted! Simon Kang


Simon Kang runs a small design company called BlackOink Design. But Simon is also an avid toy collector. Seeing the work of the toy designers, inspired him to take a hiatus from work and create his own toy. “It is a little dream of mine,” he adds, “something which I wanted to accomplish in this lifetime. I am a very hands-on and curious person and I like to explore and create new things. Passion has always been a part of me and I always believe that with passion, one can achieve more in life.”

Simon about his slick pig: “The BO9 design is based on my company’s profile of “oink” aka the pig. This is no ordinary dude; he is full of passion and zest. Always serious in what he is doing, he never backs down on challenges coming his way. Armed with a never-say-die attitude, he will conquer whatever the future throws at him. To spice things up a little, I have featured two of my favorite passions within BO9, cars and graphics. As a result BO9 sports racing stripes, complete with carbon fiber packaging.”
