Tachamapan Chanchamrassang

Few Thai illustrators have received international recognition like Tachamapan, better known by her creative alias Pomme Chan. Her roster of clients and collaborations is quite frankly insane: Microsoft, Adidas, Marc Jacobs, MTV, BMW, Shiseido, Kiehl’s, Sony, and the New York Times, just to name a few. She also designed one of the official posters for the 87th Academy Awards and, if you go to Urban Outfitters right now, you can find an entire clothing line with her name on it. Pomme Chan has achieved every passionate designer’s dream—to be an independent brand other brands want to be a part of. But while Happy Pomme Studio is expanding organically, her approach to business is admirably humble. “I’m building a sustainable business so I don’t want it to grow too fast. I like small and quality-controlled.”

Definition of Success: Don’t call it a success! Just keep going.
