About me

My name is Amy Vien and I am a recent graduate of BA (hons) Graphic Design from the University of Brighton. I am passionate about design, politics, and food :-) I am an enthusiastic and hardworking person who works well independently and in a team. My recent work explores and curate stories from everyday people with bizarre yet wonderfully ordinary lives. My strengths lie in publication design, communication, and being adaptable to any given situation. Currently at Homework. Contact me for freelance projects.
