Hello. My name is Timothy Chew, a Singapore – born communication designer based in Melbourne, Australia. I had recently graduated from Swinburne University with a Bachelor of Communication Design with Honours. I previously practised with Swinburne Design Centre and had the opportunity to work with a variety of clients, including the Asthma Foundation of Victoria, RSA Australia and New Zealand, Bayley House and Visual Communication Victoria. In addition to the commercial work, I have also worked on various publications for Planetshakers City Church, Melbourne. I believe that a design is only as good as its ability to communicate its intent. This is achieved through the perfect correlation between communication and the dynamics of various elements, such as space, scale, typography and objects. I also have a keen interest in typography, editorial design and photography.

I am available for work.
