Yik Ling Chan
BA (Hons) Graphic Design
I am a graphic design student who loves oil painting, and hence illustration is my strength in this field. I also enjoy packaging design since it is always something that attracts me to buy a product. I am an outgoing person who is also a team player. I also love learning new things and I am capable of working under pressure.
Completing the Graphic Design course at Coventry University helped me build confidence in design, since I had no experience in this area beforehand. I learned much about the subject, including software including the Adobe suite. Procreate on iPad also helped me a lot in developing illustration work.
However, studying at university is not enough; my goal is to take an internship after graduation to broaden my horizons and gain real-life experience of graphic design with illustration, packaging, environmental design, publication design and advertising.
"Occasionally, in times of worry, I've longed to be stylish, but on second thought I say no—just let me be myself—and express rough, yet true things with rough workmanship."
