Graphic Design Landscape offers seamless opportunities to further advance the known face of 2D Graphics to 3D and beyond; as well as exciting opportunities to work at the intersections of Graphics, Technology, Social Context, Material Cultures, Systems and other areas of Design Context.
This workfolio is a collective to share my learnings and experience in teaching-learning pedagogy, academics, professional practice (both projects and skills-based volunteering to conduct and organise design workshops), design research (publications, authorship and reviewing), administrative, management tasks and responsibilities as
an educator in Visual Communication Design.
