About me

Hello! I am an experienced multi-disciplinary designer based in London, currently working for a various projects as on a freelancing basis. My expertise and experience cover a wide range as in consumer product design (especially knowledgable in production and material), retail/hospitality interior design and exhibition/trade show set designs. Along with my skills in designing software such as Adobe CC, Rhino3D, AutoCad and Keyshot, I do believe my experience in more hands-on tasks like exhibition stand installation, retail outlet setup and visual merchandising will be very beneficial in, especially but not limited to, organisations with compact teams. I am currently actively seeking a new adventure in interior or exhibition design fields to expand my knowledge and gain new skills. Although I am still open for product design, or any type of design opportunities so please do get in touch should you have any. Would love to connect with creative people to get much more inspiration, so please say hi!
