I'm MeiLing.

Profile

I am a Visual Communication Designer based in New York. You might be curious: what is Visual Communication? Is it different from Graphic or Visual Designer? For me, graphic design is limited to traditional-defined design (mostly printing and illustration works) while visual design is more about user interface. I do both, and more than both.

 

"Idea first" is my design philosophy. A good idea shouldn't be limited by methods or tools. There are always several ways to achieve it. And often time, result is combination of graphic design, visual design and even more.

 

I aim to communicate messages, thoughts, creativity and humor in a visually appealing way, in any forms.
