About me

Hi! I'm a recent graduate of Norwich University of the Arts. Since graduating, I have undertaken many internships which have taught me an abundance of vital factors about the industry I'm excited to start my career in. It has also strengthened my practice as a designer. When approaching new briefs, I combine multi disciplinary skills with innovative thinking to achieve the best outcome. I'm always keeping my eyes open to learn new things, as I feel it is personally fundamental to explore new paths to benefit my skillset as a designer. My most recent experience was a class with Quill London, which gave me a great insight into modern calligraphy! My work has recently featured on packaging of the world: http://www.packagingoftheworld.com/2017/03/de-cecco-student-project.html?m=1

Carter Wong

  • Student Brief - How can the perception of estate agents be changed? "Glasshouse is another entry that successfully used the emotive aspect associated with buying, selling and renting homes to change perceptions by creating an estate agent’s based on transparency. The ‘Transparency is key’ tagline is a clever pun used to communicate the honest, trustworthy and transparent nature of Glasshouse. The design was executed across multiple touch points including a transparent plastic key ring, a translucent letter to be sent to prospective clients and a see-through for-sale sign that enables people to see the property through the sign- a visual symbol of how Glasshouse considers trust." - Carter Wong http://www.carterwongdesign.com/black-sheep/ https://www.designweek.co.uk/inspiration/carter-wongs-black-sheep-awards-winners/
