Introducing our Chinese team

  • Text by Terence Teh

Satellite Voices: What’s your occupation?
Karchun Leung: I am the features director of Modern Weekly, the most influential weekly magazine in China. And I also have a design company with my partner and my creating mobile apps.

SV: Where do you live and work?
Karchun Leung: I live in the center of Shanghai, and work everywhere and anywhere I can sit down with my computer and connect to the internet.

SV: What inspires you about the area that you live and work in?
Karchun Leung: I live very close to the French concession, so the mixture of the buildings and people walking about the area always amused me.  

SV: What is your favourite hidden city spot?
Karchun Leung: My favourite hidden spot is the local secondhand market, even though most of the people around think they only have very crap stuff. But I found my Bill Blass coat there for the price of a Big Mac.

SV: What can you find in your city that you can’t get anywhere else?
Karchun Leung: Home.

SV: How would you describe your personal style of work?
Karchun Leung: Very free but would be very focus when I found something interesting.

SV: What projects are you working on at the moment and what’s next?
Karchun Leung: Satellite Voices of course, working with a toy company on developing a new line of minimalism styled remote cars (because I think the remote controlled cars at the store right now are too complicated), and I am also planning to do a magazine with my friend in Beijing which is about long interviews with different types of people and hopefully that would publish around July.
