I knew being a graphic designer was my calling ever since I went to Temasek Polytechnic open house back when I was 16. I went straight to the design block, saw Visual Communication and knew then I wouldn’t want to do anything else, it was the only booth that I went during the open house.
I’ve been dabbling in design for 13 years, even so up till now I still have trouble finding my own identity (the way i illustrate characters), but I am slowly figuring it out. I did freelancing for 3 years but didn’t really like the isolation and lack of social interaction so I went back to work full time for Neu Entity.
I usually like to get away from my macbook, just walk around finding inspiration. If that doesn’t help, I will fall back to Pinterest and Instagram and take a look at other designers that inspire me, that always help!
When designing is best to be clear on the end objective, we sometimes get lost in our creativity and tend to forget the main purpose of why we design it.
I usually like to take a look at examples and inspirations online, to get the ball rolling. I always have a notebook nearby, and sketch when random ideas pop up, as random as the idea will come while taking a bath….
Playing with my son, he is my inspiration and motivator. He always remind me that “i can do it” like as if he understands my struggles.
I also like to clean alot..The teen me wouldn’t agree to this, my desk then was really messy.
I always wanted to morph into a dolphin and be one with the ocean. Everytime when im in it, i feel calm and peaceful. I want to explore the depths of the ocean and maybe go find atlantis!
