I started out building websites for rock bands when I was 17. It eventually grew into an obsession with the internet and how I can magnify people’s passions through interactive design. After working as an Art Director for 5 years, I moved my life from Singapore to New York to dive deeper into the realms of design and technology.

My name is Lim Si Ping, but I go by the pseudonym Handson — I like to get my hands dirty. I operate as a freelance interactive designer and occasional maverick, building things in-between from arduino bots to 3D printing. I also teach about design at MFA Design+Technology at Parsons The New School of Design.

My creative journey has been a fruitful one, having my work published in international press, won a couple of awards, granted scholarships and collaborated with amazing people.
