Tuan Hoang

Tuan Hoang is a cross-platform designer/developer who was born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam. Passionate about simplicity and functionality, Tuan creates his work in the combination of emotion, balance, with strong type and image.

Tuan studied software engineering and graphic design at Aptech and Dpi from 2009 to 2012 respectively. After spending a couple of months for professional internships, Tuan joined District Eight for the position as a designer/photographer in 2012. For almost 4 years working with fellow designers, technicians, and craftsmen at District Eight, Tuan shaped his skills and gained experience in the furniture manufacturing process which involved him in different stages from product development to after-sales service.

In early 2016, Tuan decided to do something fresh and more stimulating than simply playing with graphic elements: launching his own multi-disciplinary design studio Nogias, which primarily focuses on furniture crafting. In 2017, Tuan moved to the USA and founded the watch company Klasern in 2018. Tuan is currently pursuing his Bachelor of Arts degree in Texas, with expected graduation in 2022.
