Building from the grounds of passion & inspiration, YDJ is a social enterprise startup serving the global design & art community.

How it all started?

Once a struggling digital designer and facing gender discrimination at work, Hazel Lee started connecting with other creatives on social media to find a sense of belonging. She then realized many creatives whom she talked to encounter pretty similar career challenges.

Desiring to share her thoughts and knowledge about design, she started a blog in June 2015 and later, YDJ (Your Design Juice) came into inception.

Our online platforms like the YDJ Blog is a place where artists and designers can showcase their work and inspire others with their stories. The YDJ Store is our online store where you can discover and shop for creative products made by our fellow designers, artists and artisans.

Our marketing consultation service helps new and emerging creatives in building and growing their income doing what they love. At times, we will also bring our community together by occasionally organizing events like art fairs, workshops and the likes.

We are also open to partnerships and collaboration with anyone who wants to share knowledge and inspiration about design and the arts. Feel free to connect with us today!
