GLYZELLE ALANOGRAPHIC DESIGNER AT SII STUDIO
I am a graphic designer and illustrator now working in a creative agency called Sii Studio, where I was fortunate to continue working after I completed my internship. I grew up with a passion for drawing and art, which eventually lead me into the world of design. Working within the industry has given me many opportunities to work on great projects for brands like LG, Sharp Extensive IT and Thredbo.
What inspired you to enter into the career you’re in?
I’ve always been interested in creating something visually, and design was the perfect outlet for that. Design is so broad, that there is always something new and different to be designed, which makes it fun and rewarding.
What are your fondest memories of your time at SAE?
The people and environment made the experience at SAE more memorable, it was great to meet and work with people with the same passion.
Are you able to shed some light on how studying at SAE lead you to where you are now?
Studying at SAE helped shape me as the designer I am today, from all the technical skills to transferable skills. SAE equips you for the real-world industry, and I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for SAE.
What are your career highlights?
Being offered to continue working as a designer for Sii Studio was a highlight for me! I have met some great like-minded people so far in my career, and have been able work with some brands like LG, Sharp Extensive IT and Thredbo, on advertisements to brochures. Branding is also one of my favourite things to create in design, so it has been great to be able to brand and rebrand many businesses.
What projects are you working on at the moment?
I’m working on a branding project, and a couple brochures. I’m also currently designing and illustrating for a 2D platformer game on the side.
What advice would you give to students aspiring to become successful in their field?
I would say to never say no to any opportunity that comes your way, whatever the experience may be, it will always be a learning experience. Always perfect your craft and find what you’re good at in design, that is what will shine when you are a designer.
