Next #TDKtuesdays
Manila meet-up:

Announcing soon!
May 7, 2024

Meet Regina, your Manila host!

Hi, I'm Regina! I'm a 20-something-year-old self-proclaimed multidisciplinary designer from Manila, Philippines. I have a degree in Architecture, but have love and appreciation for designing other than just buildings. Aside from practicing architecture and doing freelance design work, I involve myself in creating events specifically to support local artists in Manila, whether they be visual, poetry or music. I hope to see you at #TDKtuesdays!
