Greetings and salutations from World HQ of Design Kompany, the Southeast Asia edition. Based in Cambodia and Vietnam for nine years, I have been morphing my projects towards things that, I feel, are more important and interesting (to me) in this moment, in this place. I have sketched out our Autumn 2022 calendar here.

It goes into more of the details of the plan for this year, here in Phnom Penh. Business and art intersect at innovation. Let’s explore it. Let’s really talk it out, and not in a corny, buzzy-wordy way. I’ve got 20 years of experience to draw from in journalism, entrepreneurship, and architecture marketing. This helps. I don’t use social media; I believe in simplicity. I don’t have a smartphone. I like low-key, small-scale publishing that’s about people and connecting us. I love high-quality conversation, and professional networking where people matter more than sales. If you know what I mean.

Thanks for asking, too, about how long this has been going, DE. I have been working on S P A C E quietly for six years. The issue pictured on the top of this pile is Issue #170. The shop has the best highlights that I’ve curated. But at the time of this writing, here is the latest one:

‘How can I read S P A C E?’

You can download single issues in our shop.

To get fresh issues sent by email every Tuesday at 7AMUSEST, become a member. Sign up for membership at this page.


‘Who is this for?’

People who can focus for 20+ minutes without getting distracted by a ping notification. Seriously, that’s my audience.


‘Can I publish with S P A C E?’

Maybe. It starts with us building a relationship with you since we now know that is how it works in Southeast Asia. Meet many times. See if we’re a fit. That can take six months to a year, now that it has been obvious what kind of timeline is realistic. I want it to be a good mutual fit.

To get started, reach out. Ask me something. Email is the way to do that. Here is a link to the contact page.


‘Can you write about my business?’

Yes. Maybe.  This is how it would work for a Business Profile feature: writing your business profile in English.


‘How can I help you sustain this?’

Tell people about S P A C E. Thanks. Feel free to share this page.
