If you need an article freshly baked with a generous spread of yumminess, come and see what I have written.
Maria Fung is a full-time freelance graphic designer, writer and D.I.Y craft-maker. She graduated with a BA (Hons) Graphic Design from the University for the Creative Arts in Maidstone in 2007, one of UK’s leading creative universities, and has worked in London for a fun-filled 2 years. She has worked at some of UK’s top creative agencies like The Design Conspiracy and Stylorouge, and has a fond interest in diversifying her design magic to other sectors such as music, entertainment, games, film, corporate, publishing, PR, events and charity, just to name a few. In December 2006 and 2007, Maria was one of the 30 students selected to showcase their video works at the ODEON cinema, Maidstone in UK. Apart from having her works exhibited at the D&AD New Blood Show in London, 2007, Maria came in second place at the internationally famous digital design tournament, Cut&Paste, London 2009.
Maria has also worked for BBDO in Singapore, one of the world’s largest advertising agencies and other boutique agencies that deal with top established brands. Her experience with working at one of Rocket Internet’s companies, Zalora has enriched her with skills in e-commerce retail and online marketing. She has been featured in a variety of press such as Web Design Index 9, CulturePush, Lost at E Minor, CSS Design Awards and Awwwards.
Apart from graphic design, Maria is a keen content writer and developed her love for writing which all started from writing letters of complaint and feedback, much to her English teachers’ surprise who were sure that this once shy and quiet student who hated reading and struggled with vocabulary would fail. She has written for established names such as The Star Performing Arts Centre, Skoolopedia, Creative Pool, Bosch and Vida De Latinos where she briefly took the role of a content director and managed writers under her.
A tight budget for her house renovation led Maria to a path of D.I.Y and craft-making, which revived her artistic talents that laid dormant under years of working in commercialised art. She has expanded her talent to include clay-modelling, sketching, jewellery-making and furniture makeover.
Maria is ACTA-certified and is qualified to train adults in learning and issue WSQ approved certificates in Singapore. She believes that no hurdle is too high to overcome and that everyone should follow their own dreams rather than overwrite them with the hype and noise of empty pursuits that society can pressure one into.
When she is not busy with her work, Maria loves immersing herself in nature, cooking, philanthropy, art jamming, novel-writing and spending time with her son. She wishes for a better world and wants people out there to know that Singapore is NOT in China.
