What makes a good promotional design? “When I was working on my first promotional project in 2013, I was stuck on the idea of creating a personal logo. However, as an anonymous design student from nowhere, I found out that a logo alone could not make me stand out from the crowd. From that experience, I learnt that the most important aspect of promotional design is to build my own ‘narrative’, to showcase myself and find a creative method to visualise my story. So I decided to re-start the project from scratch.”
