Ton in BLAKE
As a professional doodler, Ton is inspired by mundane and small things that she comes across every day.
“I just like to observe. It helps me expand the world of characters in this funky world”
Ton is born and raised in Hong Kong and currently living in Shanghai. Interestingly, she is especially obsessed with things with chubby shapes and forms. Inspired by these elements, she created a home-grown brand that features creative characters in doodle form, called the FLABJACKS.

FLABJACKS are characterized by their plump outlooks and adorable emotions on their faces, The characters are receiving lots of love from people. They took Shanghai by storm and now their appearances can be found in global fashion and lifestyle brands, like NIKE and W Hotel. FLABJACKS are not just ordinary doodle characters, they also take up the mission to spread happiness and positivity to people who come across them.
The creation of a new character comes about at the moment when Ton feels a connection to the object in which she can bring to life. The objects may be ordinary and common entities, but they are invaluable inspirations for Ton. Observing how Peppertint grows and evolves along collections, she feels a personal connection with the brand as it resembles her emphasis on originality and thoughtfulness in each piece of work.
Blake is one of the styles in Peppertint’s latest collection. It has the same name as Blake Hardy, the first featured model and muse of the brand. Blake has undeniably inspired the brand in many ways. With small lens available in different colors, the eyewear has a classy yet stylish design, just like Blake himself. At the temple of the eyewear, there is a unique detail---a wave pattern that adds delicacy to the eyewear. At the tip of the arm, you can also find the letter “P”, which represents the brand name. It is the small things that make the eyewear modest yet sophisticated.
At Peppertint, refinement has always been a motto and it always will be.
