Combining the powers of graphic design and writing, Maria Fung is a Creative Communication Strategist who adopts a holistic approach to problem-solving and empowers brands with engaging content and design. She graduated with a BA (Hons) Graphic Design from the University for the Creative Arts in Maidstone, one of UK’s leading creative universities, and 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.
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 Cut and Paste Digital Design Tournament (London), 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 the surprise of those who remember the shy and quiet student who once loathed reading. She has written for established names like CapitaLand, The Star Performing Arts Centre, Skoolopedia, Creative Pool and Vida De Latinos where she briefly took the role of a content director.
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 give in to the hype of empty pursuits.
When she is not busy with her work, Maria loves immersing herself in nature, cooking, philanthropy, art jamming, craft-making, D.I.Y projects, 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.
