About the Site

curiousest designs

Curiousest Designs (formerly known as Frail Frivolity Designs) is a graphics and design resource site theming primarily on anime, manga and japanese art, dashed with some conceptual photography and lyrical typography. It is owned and maintained by Alison Jane de Silva (aka Koa-chan), an anime-manga enthusiast from the Philippines.

Frail Frivolity aimed to give anime, manga, game and design enthusiasts and lovers quality graphics like icons and wallpapers, resources such as renders, and designs such as the pre-made layouts and layout templates. It served as a personal creative playground for the webmiss, and the content closely followed her whims and interests.

The site was founded on July 7, 2007 and was  online until 2012 under Art-Lovers.Net hosting services. It’s been two years since then, but at the insistence of some very special people, who really wanted the designs and collections back online, the mistress decided to create Curiousest Designs, part of the Curiousest Network, her personal playground, to showcase the old stuff from FFD.

Curiousest will not be actively updating as the the mistress is currently focused on original art and fiction, but she still hopes that you’ll find some of her offers here useful. And who knows? Maybe a random wallpaper or icon set will just pop out one of these days. ^_^
