Ong Zi Feng is an artist with a spirit of entrepreneurship and a passion for creating things by hands. He developed interest in design at a young age when his father taught him to draw. He is thankful for the encouragement his kindergarten teacher gave him by praising his ugly drawing of a dog. Throughout his primary and secondary school education, Zi Feng spent more time doodling in his textbooks than studying. His Chinese textbook was the saddest victim of vandalism, filled with correction fluid while the figures in it were often given special makeovers. After his Secondary School education, Zi Feng decided to pursue his interest in product design and spent an enjoyable three years at Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s Diploma in Product Design & Innovation. After graduated from Polytechnic, Zi Feng was enlisted into the National Service and was posted to Tuas Naval Base as a Military Police Specialist which he spent all his saving from National Service into two solo backpacking trip, first was a two weeks trip to Taiwan and then a two month trip to Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and Malaysia. The solo backpacking trips had taught Zi Feng many invaluable lessons and changed his perspective of how he views the world, the people and in himself. As an aspiring entrepreneur, he started a small business, WindCustoms in Etsy in hope of fulfilling the childhood dreams of others by focusing on selling handmade collectible items inspired by movies and animes from Zi Feng's childhood.
