Posted May 15, 2018 08:06:10 Aae Soh, a young designer, is getting serious about designing.
“I’ve been designing for more than 15 years and it’s just something I always wanted to do,” she said.
The 24-year-old graduated from the Melbourne Institute of Design in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Design.
Her design portfolio, which she describes as “a mix of practical and creative, is part of her portfolio, with the latter she says she has “no idea what she’s doing”.
She is developing a range of new designs for her new design studio, and has already secured the support of the City of Melbourne and the State Government.
Aae says she’s had to do some serious thinking about her designs.
In her portfolio you can see she’s worked on various kinds of products, from a car bumper to a pair of boots, with an emphasis on the personal touch.
But she’s also used her designs to create products for the university and for other brands.
She says it’s a difficult balance to work within the constraints of a creative life.”
I think it’s been a bit like, what’s my next step?” she said, adding she was not sure she would continue to design if she didn’t get paid.”
That’s the beauty of it, there’s so many opportunities to be creative.
“Aae, who is the youngest of four children, says she was born into a family of graphic designers, and that has taught her the value of teamwork.”
The family always had a strong sense of direction,” she says.
She said that when her family went into financial difficulties, she was left alone to manage her business.
And she says that even when she wasn’t being paid, her family still had the “support and encouragement” she needed to keep working.
She said she felt her “life would have been a lot easier” if she had a partner to help her with business decisions.
Aae has created her own website, Aae Designs, which shows her work on a variety of different projects.
It also features the Aae family on its cover.
Although she has found success in other creative fields, including modelling and film, she’s not interested in pursuing the design business.”
If you want to be a graphic designer, that’s your dream job,” she laughed.
When she’s ready to move on to a more creative career, she plans to focus on a portfolio of work she has already done.
