Hi! I’m Amanda Wang, visual storyteller and book hoarder from Singapore and living in Auckland, New Zealand.

I’m a versatile designer, working on Illustration, Graphic Design and Motion Graphics, Video Editing, and UI. I find inspiration from the my travels, nature and mid-century modern styles.

I’ve a Bachelor of Fine Arts First Class Honours in Digital Animation from the School of Art, Design and Media, at Nanyang Technological University, a diploma in Mass Communication in Ngee Ann Polytechnic and a certificate in Sculpture at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, and have two published academic research papers about Comic Journalism. You can find my grad film here.

In my free time, you’ll find me knitting/crocheting my latest project with a nice hot cup of tea.
