Seph Mayol is a Philippine-based artist, designer, creative coder, and startup founder who creates digital interactive experiences and technology applications.
Until 2011, Seph was an art director, graphic/interactive designer and developer, creating online sceneries on and off the web for interactive agencies and design studios local and abroad. Within this experience, Seph worked with projects for various international brands like Ubisoft, Microsoft, WWE, Walt Disney, Ricky Martin, Universal Music Group, and Paramount Pictures, to name a few.
Following his love and fascination for nature’s beautiful patterns and form complexities, Seph merges art and code to create his own artificial environment. Manifest them in the form of interactive digital installations, visualizations, and generative design work by creatively connecting colors, sounds, and physical movements with sensing technologies. This exploration led him to create the Philippines' first life-size digital interactive installation that's been showcased publicly in one of the major malls in the country.
By 2015, together with his co-founder, Seph ventured into the startup scene by starting a tech company that offers a unique and engaging sampling and rewards platform called Hoy*. During its early stages, the rewards app has been used already by brands like Bacardi, DC, AirAsia, Quiksilver, Burger King, Giordano, and numerous others. Its virality made it to the coverages of Forbes, INC., Yahoo, Entrepreneur and even CNET Japan.
In his spare time, Seph shares his work and experiences as a speaker through various design and tech gatherings. He celebrates creativity with friends through organizing design exhibitions and conferences featuring graphic designers and local talents to the world.
