PORTFOLIO AIMEE XU- GRAPHIC DESIGNER
AIMEE XU GRAPHIC
I am a graphic designer with over 3 years of experience working in Chinese Newspaper and 2 years working experience in Canada Golf Magazine. My work focuses on page Layout, advertising design and typography.
My previous working experience was mainly relate to graphic design, but I was an intern in shawtv for half-year, at that time I have a chance to learn some basic animation software, such as motion5 and finalcut pro. I like to challenge myself and am happy to learn new knowledge. The company I'm currently in has a very old-fashioned software that I never heard of
but it only took
me a short time to work as a pro.I know I still have a lot to learn in my new adventure, but I have a good willing to embrace new challenges and learn from it.

TRAVEL MAGAZINE LAYOUT
Isabelle tells us her inspiration about writing
TRAVEL JOURNAL This is a travel journal. The pictures inside were taken when I was traveling in Iceland. Of course, the layout of the entire magazine was also designed by me.
I also design digital & print versions of golf related magazines for our sponsored organizations. There are usually 2 magazines out for each month.
Unlike advertising companies, my company mainly sells advertising positions on magazines, so if advertisers need to design a new ad, we design it for free. Free design requires me to complete the collection and production of magazine content in a short time, usually I only have 15-30 minutes to complete an advertisement, and then send proof to customers.
Sometimes we also do some visual upgrades for our clients, which also requires me to complete in about 30 minutes.
BEFORE AND AFTER
I used to work in a newspaper company and design 3-4 layouts every day. Newspaper work is very different than Newspapers which requires layout and publishing within a short period of time. Here are some pages of my previous artwork
This is personal brand design
SCORECARD DESIGN DESIGN BY AIMEE
Scorecard design is a way for designers to improve their control over details. Scorecard looks very easy, but requires designers to integrate a lot of text and numbers on a small card. Some minor mistakes can cause the entire design to fail.
