DESIGN & SALES
JIMENA, Swedish Hongkonger, is fascinated with Japanese art & design aesthetics, and also appreciates the Scandinavia “Lagom” – the concept of balance and moderation.
She was educated as a business marketer in Australia then worked in different types of global companies for about 10 years afterwards. International travels for her career or leisure, which definitely widen the horizon and strengthen her independence of life.
In her late years in Sweden, her creativity was raised by her handcrafts with different materials, originally for her children. She chose to study full-time graphic design with a major in packaging design when she became a mother of two. All 3 satisfactory results (with 2 scholarships) of internships in sizable packaging consultancy and award-winning design studios wherein Malmö, Japan and The Netherlands, all are remarkable lessons for her design creativity and professionalism.
In 2019, “Sagolika Sunne graphical series” was Jimena’s first debut of her own project. The series was acquired by Sunne Municipality as a permanent collection, which is exhibited at the Cultural & Business Development office inside of the Sunne library.
Jimena is continuing to develop and work on her marketing and design professionals to her clothing business at Studio Mark & Jimena, with her husband, Mark . She also works as a graphic design freelancer and consultant for her selected projects.
“Less is more” & “Life is an adventure” are her life’s motto.
“Less is more” is always the greater way to act neatly and precisely while life is sometimes pleasant, sometimes tedious, this is the expression of “everything is possible”.
