Having no formal training at all, I learn graphic design by observation. I love to watch people doing graphic design, and that’s the way I learn software and design process. I do read a lot of design books, and I love to dig into design elements in daily life. “Design” is so cool to me, it’s visual mean to communicate, to express emotions and to enhance beauty (aesthetics). When I come across design items in daily life, no matter in areas of interior design, furniture design, product design or graphic design, I know that there’re designers backstage taking care of me. They bring convenience and beauty to my “would be” ordinary life, and I’m really thankful to all of them.
Being a “free”lancer, I didn’t get outside jobs aggressively from day one. My major works are for Frontline (a singing group involves in Hong Kong’s Chinese Christian music scene which I’ve joined over ten years), friends’ weddings and ad hoc outside jobs refered by clients. I never think of displaying my portfolio in public, since most of the works are conservative and not-that-fun to me. Upon my recent work: wedding invitation card and programme booklet for my friends Danny and Tim Tim, I start to become much adventurous in using fonts, color, and other graphical element. I start to enjoy graphic design so much, and unexpectedly I’m addicted in my own works. Clients can read messages from my works, which encourage me to share my works with more people, to hear from you, thus enhancing my ability in communication.
It’s not my wish to get all of you “loving” my work. I’m just here to get some noise from you, no matter good or bad. I love to know your interpretation and feeling over my works.
