We’ve viewed thousands upon thousands of Haiku Decks these past few months and loved each one, but a particularly striking one by Uprise Art recently caught our eye. We reached out to founder and entrepreneur Tze Chun to hear how Haiku Deck has played a role in her startup’s success.
Q&A with Entrepreneur Tze Chun
Haiku Deck: How are you using Haiku Deck in your business?
Tze: Uprise Art is an art collectors club, and we regularly host art events for our members. Haiku Deck is a great way for us to showcase the exciting artwork in our online gallery and create simple and elegant slides. I speak about art entrepreneurship fairly often as well, and have used Haiku Deck for “Art Collection 101” talks and presentations on Uprise Art.
Haiku Deck: What inspired you to start using it?
Tze: My boyfriend sent me your teaser video after seeing me struggle with slow programs on my laptop computer. Now, I use my iPad and create my Haiku Decks on the go. Literally, sometimes on the NYC subway.
Haiku Deck: How has it changed your experience of creating and sharing presentations?
Tze: As an entrepreneur, I’m constantly short on time. Unfortunately, I’m also a perfectionist. Haiku Deck enables me to make dynamic, clear, and properly aligned presentations efficiently. It’s also great to one-touch share the deck and know that I can always access it in the cloud when I arrive at my destination or conference.
Haiku Deck: What kind of response are you getting?
Tze: People think we have an in-house designer!
Haiku Deck: What’s on your Haiku Deck wish list?
Tze: Bullet points — I love the simplicity and appreciate that there are only a few text options; however, in some cases I’d like to have the option to present a short list. (Note: Tze’s wish came true in Haiku Deck 2.0! Read more about lists the Haiku Deck way here.)
