Made Up by Shay. is a newsletter written by me, Shay. I started writing mainly because I wanted to better understand myself & to better express my work. These days, I write because my mum couldn’t.

In this newsletter, I share what I learn from the Design & Tech industry, and my experience moving through the world as a non-binary neurodivergent immigrant.


Shay Who?

My name is Shay Ho. I’m a Vietnamese-Australian Product Designer & Consultant, hailing from Eora Nation, better-known as Sydney. I was a child of a cold Sunday morning in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. I’m also the curator of MakeStuffUp.Info.

Besides Design, I also practice Digital Art with Procreate. If you’re into strange art, check out my art Instagram.
