Angela Liu - Graphic Design Lecturer

30 Oct 2018

Angela Liu is a Graphic Design Lecturer at the SAE Perth Campus. We find out what she loves about being apart of the #SAECREW



Professional Bio:

Artist at heart indulging in life drawing on a weekly basis or improving my skills through the exploration of new art styles and techniques.


What music are you loving right now?

I am always on the lookout for new beats to inspire and transport me whilst creating art. Currently loving chillstep, game and movie soundtracks, Thomas Bergersen, Two steps from hell, and anything else that does not have lyrics (lyrics distract me).

Why do you love working at SAE?

At SAE, I am surrounded by like-minded and skilled creatives. We have industry professional from all creative disciplines floating around on campus, as well as many talented students. I am constantly inspired and challenged to push my boundaries, to learn and create new things and improve as a practitioner. 

Being able to share my skills, techniques and experience with passionate students is also super fulfilling, but more importantly, being a part of their creative journey is what drives me to try and provide an unforgettable experience for them.

What is the best fun fact about yourself?

I absolutely love all birds (and Little Dove :P ) and am horrified by anything that resembles a maggot. This includes extremely large butterflies.

How do you like to spend your time outside of SAE?

Not to be that weird antisocial in the corner, but my time outside of SAE generally revolves around ART! You'll either find me indoors in my studio working on art projects, eating food, snuggling with my parrot Charlie Bear, or out in the world appreciating nature...and ducks...

What is your life motto?

 Something I often say to my students. Mistakes are your best friend! Learn to embrace them. If you're not making them, than you're not improving. When you make a mistake, push past the frustration...only then, when it gets too hard, will you know that you're learning something new!

What is your dream holiday destination?

Machu Picchu, because of Llamas, the culture, and green is my favourite colour!

Are you working on any exciting projects at the moment?

Currently, I have teamed up with a talented Animation lecturer from SAE Perth to create an animation for the WAnimate 3|Thirty challenge. Basically, we need to create a 30 second animation in 3 months, and I've been working on the background art. The deadline is at the end of November 2018, so keep your eyes peeled!

I am also working on a series of creature/ monster designs for an upcoming RPG tabletop game with a Games lecturer from SAE Perth, super exciting!

In the background, I have my personal creature design project X-Breeder, which I have revamped and have been chipping away since my Masters in Interactive and Visual design. Regrettably, I am now extremely behind on my Inktober sketches.
