Digital, Typography

I am a graphic designer and web developer with a keen interest in digital design and typography. What I enjoy doing the most is using my research, design and web dev skills to tell stories and inform people about issues – both in print and on the web.

What areas of graphic design are you most interested in?
I am most interested in the web and digital side of graphic design. That not to say I'm not interested in typography, editorial design, illustration or animation — I am just more interested in how they apply in the web.

Who are your favourite designers?
I love the work of motion designer Ash Thorp. His work has a futuristic cyberpunk-ish look which has had an influence in a few of the projects I've done. His titles for FITC Tokyo 2015 is the most beautiful work of motion graphics I've ever laid my eyes on.

I also really like the work of Taiwanese designer Wang Zhi Hong. He does a lot of book covers that are simple and understated yet so elegant.

What do you wish you knew more about?
I wish I knew more about 3D modeling and animation. Being able to create a visual of whatever is in my head is something that appeals to me.
