#3 Jin & Lyn - Founder // ForReal Studio
"ForReal Studio was co-founded by Jin Xin Kwok and Lyn-Hui Ong in 2014. Based in Penang, Malaysia, we are an independent creative studio, focusing on visual communication, corporate identity, graphic design and illustration as our efforts in creating iconic brands for clients around the world. Besides branding, we have also participated in book layout and custom illustration for several book designs. As much as we rely on digital softwares, we never cease to appreciate the irreplaceable look and feel of handcrafted art forms. In exploration of how we balance between the two, we also provide illustration in traditional media and mural painting in both small and large scale."
What Jin&Lyn will be sharing:
Graphic Design and Illustration can help send powerful messages. Powerful messages that sells. We will be sharing some of our projects that do just that for our clients, covering works in visual identity, packaging, book design and more.
"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." - Steve Jobs . Design is not about art, but how you communicate to users via your art design. To learn from Jin & Lyn, do register yourself for this gathering!
