Founded by alter-ego; adesignmachine, Alden is an award-winning designer and 3D artist based in Singapore. He designed several winning industrial designs for multiple MNCs with the likes of DELL, SENNHEISER, and ASUS, to name a few. A fun fact, he is the design lead of the ASUS TUF GAMING K5 keyboard, which leads to igniting his passion for the custom mechanical keyboard design scene. One dot connected to another, from keycap to NFT.
His first encounter with NFT is through designers, like @GEO, and @ARC4G on Foundation.app [FND] while running his design IG in early 2021. It was the dawn of FND and NFT then. He tried for an invitation for many months but to no result. On the side, he worked on an idea of a PFP project by creating various keycap traits but eventually pivoted to unique 1/1 Keycap Mecha NFT.
Three months later, he founded MMX Labs, with MechaMiniX (Mini Machines in a mini family). He released the first 5 NFTs on Opensea in late Nov ’21. Finally, in early Dec’21, he was invited by badass 2D PolyArt artist @myitchyfinger (now an MMX collector too) to FND.
His journey in the NFT space continues in 2022, launching more badass mecha designs, upgrading the mechas, and enhancing the mecha design and visual aesthetics.
