Tell us about Hexeum.
Hexeum originally started as one person creating custom designs for streamers to earn a little extra money on the side while developing an indie game. It turns out we are better stream package designers than game developers.
How long has Hexeum been making theme packages?
The first package we ever released as Hexeum was over a year ago.
Why do you have an interest in the live streaming industry?
With a background as a software developer, I believe the live streaming industry has provided the most interesting way of combining a design and coding skillset.
What are some of your favorite hobbies outside of design? Do you have a favorite game?
Surfing is a hobby I am really into right now. It’s the perfect excuse to get outdoors, not to mention a great way to relieve stress.
What inspired you to create your own business?
I have always loved creating things, especially when it has a positive impact on other people. Creating a business gave me the freedom to both be creative and create things that people hopefully love.
What are your favorite packages you’ve made to date?
Brass Empire is probably my personal favorite. This is just because I think steampunk aesthetics are awesome.
Describe your design process for creating theme packages.
We try to create as many unique and stylized packages as possible. Every designer has their own style and preference, so giving them the freedom to fulfill their own vision is very important.
If you weren’t so good at your job, what else would you be doing?
Most likely trying to make it as an indie game developer. Games are just something I am passionate about in any shape or form.
What would you like to do when you retire?
I can’t imagine myself ever being fully retired. Ideally, I would shift my focus into teaching or sharing skills I have acquired to help younger generations achieve their own goals.
What would you like to be known/remembered for?
I would like to be remembered for having a positive outlook on life and inspiring others to believe in themselves.
Do you have any advice for aspiring designers/creatives?
Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for advice from other creatives. Building up a network with individuals who are on the same journey as you really helps to keep pressing on during difficult times.
