Work Experience

Noonmoon Design

Creative

This is my baby; this is where I create. This is the birth place of the "Hiding-in-the-Wrong-Place Club", currently being sold and exhibited in China. And this will be the birth place for many new collections of work in the field of brand identity, print design and illustrations.

Six Hundred Four

Creative Director

Six Hundred Four has a very interesting concept. Integrating fashion and art, the brand merges sneakers and local art together. The product is limited-edition artist-designed shoes, and I am very honoured and happy to be part of the store launching team. My creative director role allowed me to lead and dictate the brand design from print to web. I also art directed photoshoots, consulted for print and productions, and designed various interior, exterior and window displays. The most rewarding part of my position is getting in touch with the Vancouver art scene and becoming part of it.

Puffant Visual Communications

Chief Designer

After touring the city of Shenzhen and meeting the right people, I was hired immediately as the chief designer of a local design firm. The studio, named Puffant Visual Communications, was young and needed help with their brand identity, line of products and marketing material. So I signed an one-year contract, had my first landlord, attended my first wedding ceremony, and ate a turtle first time in my life. I worked in China.

IdN

Design Intern

Before I graduated from Emily Carr University, I came across the IdN Magazines and the visual content captivated me. After several email exchanges, I flew over and breathed the same air as the art director and the designers of this very magazine studio. For two months, I handled the online showcase and created advertisements and illustrated for trade shows and in-house. This internship made me realize my passions and strengthened my interests in design, and helped me get in touch with the creative forefront.
