Iamvantan WELCOME TO MY PORTFOLIO
Hi. This is Vania. This is my portfolio.
I am a Singaporean who moved to the UK in 2004, adapted to a different life and adopted many wonderful insights. The UK has definitely been a place of inspiration and has opened my eye for design. I decided to take a course in Graphic Design and since then, I know I will never look at anything designed in the same way ever again. Everything is inspirational and has made me constantly think. I am passionate. I am dedicated. I am a thinker.
