Hello. My name is Daniel Kao and I will empower you to change the world.
Welcome to my humble corner of the internet, the place that I decorate and post my thoughts and creations on a seemingly endless digital canvas. Text, graphics, motion, effects, shapes, colors, and sounds are all integral parts of my creativity that I am always searching for ways to improve. As a designer, I don’t just learn design, I design it.
Diplateevo was initially created as a personal outlet for my thoughts, but has now become a place where I want to publish high quality articles to help anyone who stumbles across my blog. Diplateevo is a place for education, inspiration, productivity, leadership, technology, and other musings.
I am currently studying Computer Science at the University of California, San Diego. Throughout high school and college, I have taken various opportunities to apply my design knowledge, ranging anywhere from class projects to clubs and publications. Through my free time during my four years in high school, I have explored many different aspects of programming, web designing, electronic designing, etc. Much of these explorations have given me opportunities to create things not only for myself, but for clients as well.
Besides design, I also enjoy learning about business and practical ways to approach different tasks with different mindsets. Thus, the purpose of my blog is not only to provide tech hacks, but also productivity and mindsets that will be practical in the real world.
While you’re here, feel free to check out my portfolio and blog!
Since I am always interested in taking on new challenges, feel free to contact me if you have a design project, question, or suggestion.
