Hi, I am Lilian!
I am a 23-year-old artist based in Toronto, Canada.
I started Duludulu Design in 2019 when I was still a first year university student. Back then, I only sold enamel pins and stickers.
Fast forward to now, I am focusing on creating original designs related to fashion and home decor. Some of my favourite projects are the froggie cardigans and dreamy tulip clocks. Meanwhile, I still have so many ideas I want to turn into reality!
Fun fact about me
I don't have a specific fashion style. Sometimes I dress myself in pastel & vibrant outfits, but sometimes I just like classic & chic monotone fits.
I was raised in Shanghai, China til I was 13. I speak fluent Mandarin + English.
I studied computer science and finance at the University of Waterloo,
Meet koko & ro
They are my brand mascots! They are just two derpy bunnies here to make you happy. I am looking to create a lot more merch with them!
You can find more art about them on @koko_and_ro on IG and Twitter. We also have some merch available in shop :3
Q & A - Get to know me
Q: Do you sell at conventions?
YES. I would sell at local conventions near Toronto, Canada. In 2024, I will be selling at some conventions outside of Ontario, such as AniRevo.
Q: Is duluduludesign a full-time job?
Nope, I work as a UX/UI designer for full-time right now. I try to dedicate as much free time possible for my small business because I enjoy every second working on things I love. If Duludulu Design does grow big in the future, it is possible to make it my full-time work.
Q: What are your favourite shoujo animes?
My favourite shoujo animes are Kaichou wa Maid Sama, Ouran High School Host Club and Cardcaptor Sakura. You might have noticed that I have more products for these animes than others in my shop because I have just loved them so much since elementary school.
Q: What made you decide to start duluduludesign?
It first started when I visited Artist Alley at the anime convention, and I saw some really pretty enamel pins. I have always enjoyed art and wanted to run my own small business, so I thought to myself, "why can't I make my own pins?" And the hot-headed me started designing my first pins just 2 days after visiting the con :D
Q: What are your hobbies?
Apart from drawing and design, I love rollerskating, skateboarding, hip-hop dancing, and listening to music, espeically anime & Kdrama OSTs and Kpop songs. My favourite Kpop artists are Twice, BTS, BTOB, Seventeen and Akdong Musicians.
I am also a hoarder, I collect a ton of cute things like postcards, plushies, enamel pins, figurines, mangas and artbook.
