BR ACKET Branding & Packaging

Since target audiences value professional advice and quality products over having a vast selection, I chose to focus on brand elements of precision, elegance, and clarity, all of which appeal strongly to passionate photographers.


JAPAN EARTHQUAKE WEB INFOGR APHIC Concept & design The target audience is everyday Internet users interested in current events, and Japan in particular. One of the main goals of this web poster is to deliver information without boring data and confusing graphs. To achieve this, a limited colour palette (red, grey, black) and a very graphic style is used to convey the information about the location, magnitudes, number of deaths and number of houses destroyed in each earthquake, and the significance of each quake in relation to each other in an easily accessible format.

WILD RICE Branding & graphics The solution embodies the theme “East meets West� while integrating local sourcing and sustainable business values into the brand.


SEASONING PA LETTE Branding & packaging The company believes that less is more. I have designed the package to stay true to this core value. The packaging is clear, simple, eye catching, and meaningful. Through a spectrum of beautiful colours that peek through the die-cut, consumers can easily find the perfect match for both the eye and the palate.

IDE A GR ADSHOW CONCEPT Concept & design Since the IDEA program is known for its strength in design and illustration, it made sense to design our promotional materials to emphasize the benefits of having both. My grad show material is designed to present the event as a wedding or engagement party, as if “Design” and “Illustration” were a couple—a perfect match.


REM Postcards REM POSTCAR DS Concept, photography & design I love photography and design. I believe that every image is a reflection of the state of mind and heart that the photographer was in at that moment, I also believe that design is the best way to interpret this state of being. Combining the two, something beautiful and meaningful emerges.

TW I N WAVE Branding & packaging These repackaged kids’ snacks eliminate the original non-recyclable materials (plastic and aluminum), and help reduce fuel used in transportation with their lighter and more stackable form. The style and format of the illustrations is designed to appeal to the younger audience, making the snacks fun and exciting to eat.


LIBERTY SNUFFED Concept & illustration This editorial illustration reflects on the fact that consumers have handed over too much power to corporations.


TRUTH ABOUT BOT TLED WATER Concept & illustration This editorial illustration uncovers the ugly truth behind the perceived safe, clean, and smart drinking choice of bottled water.


GENDER PREFERENCE Concept & illustration This editorial illustration communicates how the age-old bias for boys not only unbalances the gender proportion for both sexs, it also foreshadows the emergence of many potential social issues in China.
