About me

Hi, I am Jamie Chow Tsz Man, a communication designer from Hong Kong. I have a stray cat and I love travelling. I tried to visit as many Asia cities as I could when I worked in Shanghai for over 5 years before coming to London a year ago. I received my degree in Communication Design from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. I had my solid design skills trained at the graphic house Hesign and Jellymon in the early years. After that, I worked at the innovative design consultancy IDEO, learning to see a bigger picture as a designer in the business ecosystem. Right now, I am a freelance communication designer, to work with teams with different background. From the global creative agency BBH to the independent art group Ibsen; and from the corporate British Council to start-ups.
