Hey Aimee! Tell us a bit about you?

I’m 24 years old from Melbourne. I love exploring weird food combos (dumplings with tomato sauce anyone!?), tracking my online orders and, as I’ve learnt through this Graphic Design course, zooming in to 64000% on Illustrator to perfectly align two lines.

Aimee Li - Personal Identity Design

What or who inspired you to be a designer?

I always enjoyed art and design subjects in school but went on to study nursing in university. After almost 4 years of working in healthcare, I wanted to learn a new skillset and was brought back to design. I find design really fulfilling because it bridges my creative side and passion to work in a field that can create a positive impact.

What are you up to in the design world at the moment?

I enjoyed the Certificate IV in Design course so much that I decided to continue pursuing higher education design studies into uni and recently got an offer for my first preference which is super exciting!

What is your favourite part of the design process?

Mockup applications! Also receiving critique and feedback – I know making changes can be annoying at the best of times but it really helped me improve and develop my skills and become a better designer.

You were really into all sorts of design disciplines at TGDS, branding, campaigning and even packaging.
Have you a fav?

As someone who kept a plastic bubble tea cup for a month because of how cute the lid design was, branding and packaging are my top two contenders.

Tell us anything you would like to about your featured works.

If you look closely at my ‘de-caffeinated’ Java Love packaging, one of the elephants has their eyes closed.

What did you love most about studying design?

Studying design has made me much more appreciative of the visual aspects around me. Nothing is ever placed there for no reason, every element works together in communicating a specific goal and I love how this is all achieved with a system of points and lines.

Whats your dream design job?
Don’t hold back!

One that makes me think, “I can’t believe I get paid to do this!”
