May Leong Interview

Hello! Meet May Leong. May is a Sydney graphic designer and artist. She runs Seal Studio and the card company Cwazy Co, where she creates some of the cutest and quirkiest cards you will ever see. May was encouraged by her dad at the age of four to run a mini greeting card store for her close friends and family, and now she is running a much bigger card company! 

May is planning to branch out her products into stationary, posters, and wrapping paper (oooh...) I adore May's work and was so glad to have the opportunity to chat with her.

+ Hello May! Please tell us a bit about yourself and your work.
I’m May Leong, an illustrator/instagrammer. Design is the love that I love. I feel incredibly lucky to have a small studio, where the last thing I go to sleep and the first thing I wake up is design.


+ What lead you to become a designer/artist?
I started making cards from a very young age. All thanks to my Mum and Dad who were always encouraging me to draw and paint. 


+ Is there anything/anyone that has had a big influence on your work, and if so, how?
 I’ve always been fascinated by the 60s. The whole era has pretty much influenced my work. My work has an old and new theme. My style is whimsical with a dash of fun.
+ What is the most exciting project you’ve worked on during your career?
The most exciting thing would be collaborating with West Elm, Brooklyn, to create a bunch of artwork for their store.
+ What is your favourite card from Cwazy Co?
I’m in love with The Leafy Society and The Palm Story from Cwazy Co greeting cards. I'm a big fan of leaves!


+ Where do you hope to be in 5 years?
I’ve learned that most things are a work in progress. Who knows where i’ll be in the next five years? I love the element of surprise here!

Hope you enjoyed that! It was lovely to chat with May.You can find more of May here:
