Happy Ever Alter

Combining my belief that design is a powerful tool to influence emotions and my love for startups, I founded Happy Ever Alter when I was a student to spread happiness and positivity through design.

Happy Ever Alter


2015 to Present

I started Happy Ever Alter in 2015 when I was an international student in Melbourne as I was inspired by the creative culture of the city and the support available for small art businesses.

I believe that design is a powerful tool to influence emotions, hence I decided to create positive artworks that put a smile to people's faces.
