Hello! My name is Lily, a multi-disciplinary designer specializing in graphic design and illustration. I received my Bachelor of Design, Honours degree at the York University/Sheridan College Program of Design (YSDN) in Toronto.

I grew up watching my grandfather does Chinese brush painting and calligraphy. My cultural and visual art background take a big part in influencing the works I create in both conceptual and aesthetic way. Branding/identity, illustration & icons and packaging are my specialties. Most recently, I have also delved into the field of UX/UI design, where I am the lead designer for a start-up mobile app. I also have many experiences in the retail industry, where I’m responsible for various branding and packaging design for food and cosmetic products.

Aside from design, I would love to travel and explore the world; to learn about different cultures and their own unique visual language. I enjoy drinking tea rather than coffee. During my free time, I create paper goods products for my online Etsy shop and play in a ultimate frisbee league.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss a potential project or chat over a cup of tea!
