Discover the interview of Emily Kwan, located in Hong Kong, China.
How did you become designer ?
I found myself particularly interested in creative industry and designing something graphical after an introductory talk in my secondary school. I had grown my passion and interest towards graphic design and started some self-initiated projects. After I got into my BA course in communication design, I began to know more about different aspects of design – theories, researches, creative thinking, and most importantly, to discover our own aesthetic views as well as our own area of interest. After my graduation, I started to become a designer and hoping to actualise my own design perspectives and believes.
How would you define your vision of design, your style ?
I always believe that design is something that is blended into our daily lives and design is always happened to change and enhance people’s lives. Therefore, I always design in a practical way while fulfilling my own aesthetic views. I think inspiration is everywhere around us, and everything happens around us can turn into design inspirations.
For the future, what are your professional projects ?
I’m working on some food-related design projects such as food package and menu designs. I also started developing on my food styling instagram blog in order to bring good food visuals to others!
What do you like the most in your job ?
The biggest satisfaction and pleasure of my job is gaining recognition from my clients and from the viewers, since it proofs the feasibility and recognition of my designs – design is not something personal but always something that can help changing one’s perception or enhance others’ understanding.
