Living in the Shadow is a documentary that explores the effects of redevelopment in East London. The film follows the developing story of The Goodsyard development project — a derelict site at the risk of becoming a complex of skyscrapers. ‘Redevelopment’ as a process is neither intrinsically good nor bad, it carries with it different significance for different people; and with them, different demands and visions for an ideal community. By telling the stories of the major stakeholders of The Goodsyard development — residents and campaign groups, the council, and the property developer — we aim to present a comprehensive understanding of how this development project will affect those whose livelihoods are closely tied with the unique characteristics of Shoreditch.

The series comprises of a selection of documentary shorts, drama shorts, and animations that explores the resonance and repercussions of the movement in different parts of society a year after the movement. My involvement in this project involved the production of web videos and content for the project’s Facebook page, along with assisting production in 6 of the 8 episodes.

Project type: Internship

Company: Radio Television Hong Kong

Date: Jun - Jul 2015


The Pulse is an English weekly current affairs show in Hong Kong. I produced a segment for the show that investigates the rise and fall of English news media in Hong Kong, how that affects non-Chinese speakers’ access to current issues and news, and potentially disenfranchise them from social and political debates. Are officials increasingly reluctant to provide English responses? Is English media just not making enough money? Will the rise of online news platforms shake up the city’s English news media landscape?

Paperark is an online social archiving platform targeted at schools, societies, clubs, and communities alike. The brief of this project was to enhance the front-end of the archiving site to make the platform more engaging for its end users, and to develop a more intuitive control panel interface for the administrators of the platform. Apart from the interface and UX, the corporate site also required a redesign, along with an initial idea for the platform's advertising and marketing direction.

Dimcook.com is a crowd-sourcing recipe website targeted primarily at a Hong Kong audience. This project is a design for the site's new feature - Baking Club. Baking club was designed to provide a platform where a community of people interested in baking can share recipies, knowledge, and experiences amongst each other, and on the other. The platform was also intended to provide advertisers with a more targeted audience group. The graphics and colour scheme of the site is catered towards a more female orientated user group - a demand that was reflected through the site's user base.

Strike is a documentary short about the University and College Union (UCU) teacher strikes that were staged across the UK during late 2013 and early 2014 in regards to a pay dispute between university teaching staff and the government. The documentary aimed to uncover what the strike was really about and how it was presented to the students of Goldsmiths in order to gain their support. The documentary also further questions the effectiveness of the presentation by interviewing current students, students' union members, and the Goldsmiths UCU branch leader.

My Innate Addiction to Bullshit

Art

Project type: School project

Date: Feb - Mar 2013


Exhibited at London College of Communication 2013 Foundation Show

My Innate Addiction to Bullshit is my graduation project for my Foundation Diploma at London College of Communication. The idea of this piece was to mock our unhealthy and absurd obsession towards technology and the social media. The emergence of different social mediums and new technology enabled us to connect with people more easily. On one hand this seemed to have fulfilled our need to care and to be cared about. However this illusion of interaction endlessly perpetuates our desire for more gossip and more attention. It is almost like a drug that we are heavily dependent upon. Despite the known and serious side effects, we just couldn’t help but want more.


This project recieved a distinction and was nominated best conceptual piece. It was also featured on school news and student union blog.

Identity Design

Project type: Student-led project

Date: Nov 2011 - Mar 2012

International Evening is a student-led annual charity performance night, and the theme for 2012 was time travel. As the lead creative, my role was to reestablish the brand identity of International Evening for years to come, and to create promotional materials for the 2012 evening in specific.


The idea was to represent time using both past and future elements in order to communicate the theme of time traveling. The centerpiece of the project was the poster for the night itself. This established a strong visual identity for the evening, providing a solid theme for my team to work according to, in materials including event tickets and programs. The logo was designed for a broadly applicable purpose, for use in seasonal fundraising posters. Subtle details were embedded within the advertising materials to give the evening a more playful vibe.

Just who do I think I am?

Well, that's hard to say..
I recently graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London with a degree in Media and Communications. This portfolio showcases a collection of my best works. Having completed the intensely demanding (and fun) Foundation diploma at University of the Arts London, I've had quite a different perspective to seeing the creative industry. It is like a science -- where research, experimentations, and improvements are all crucial to reaching an appropriate and elegant solution to a problem. In fact, learning in general should be fueled by curiosity, perpetuated by our continued exploration of knowledge and ideas. Who we are is ultimately defined by this knowledge, experience, and curiosity of our's, and the places they will take us next.

So, just who do I think I am?

Let's talk about stuff.
