About

Once upon a time, in this little odd forest...

Hi! I am Lynda Lye, a Singapore designer. I started my company (previously named Forestprints Design, now Odd Forest Studio) in August 2004, and launched my website (www.littleoddforest.com) and lifestyle label, LITTLEODDFOREST, in October 2004, affectionately known as LOF by friends and fans. I LOVE design, and wanted to do something on my own that i could take pride in and truly love. Many things in the world today tend to be too de rigueur, slick and cold, and I was looking for more things quirky, odd and colorful with more personality. So I embarked on this journey, born from daydreams of escaping monotony and constraints, to bring my imagination and creations to life. My main aim is, among others, to help make the world a more beautiful place to live in! LOF aims to be a lifestyle embraced by many, especially handmade lovers and craft connoisseurs from all over the world who appreciate a little dose of fun in their everyday life!

Since a child, I have been influenced by childhood fantasies of bizarre fairy tale adventures, set in magical enchanted forests, filled with imagery of talking animals, imaginary creatures and trees, creating this strange little world of colors and endless possibilities in my head. Thanks to my artist-painter dad, who began reading loads of incredible tales to me when I was still in my mother's womb.

Preferring to draw and cut freehand, I have always been an artsy-craftsy kid, doodling cutting and gluing away as early as when I was just a wee 4 year-old, scaring adults by snipping away with scissors and knives, even my own nails and hair! A Science major throughout my school years and one-time Economics degree dropout, I finally flew off alone to college in Chicago for 4 awesome years and got my Bachelors in Fine Arts degree (BFA) from the prestigious School of the Art Institute of Chicago, after much bumming around and feeling lost. I majored in Visual Communications, but got to dabble in a little bit of almost everything 'artistic', including painting and fashion, all thanks to a flexible curriculum, an experience I will truly treasure all my life.

I design and make only what I like! Everything is produced in limited numbers, with many one-of-a-kind creations, made with lots of love and sweatshop-labor free. I strongly believe in good quality and usable hand made goods, and am annoyed when handmade is associated with flimsy arty impractical items that will not last. I love using vintage/out-of-production materials, and playing with various combinations to make each piece unique. Besides being a staunch supporter of indie designers, artists and small businesses, my unbridled passion is in pervasive creativity. Not wanting to be tied down by mere labels or be dictated by my degree/training, I hope to fuse my love for all things design, be it product design, the graphic arts, packaging or fashion, with my own sense of style. I will lay my hands on everything if I could!

This is a one-woman business, with 1 full-time sewing assistant, some part-time help. I do it all, from creating and making the products, to managing the website, packing orders, and boring paperwork. Creatively, it is just me, myself and I. I design everything, from the products to graphics and marketing peripherals including my own website.
