Branding & Typography by Michael Siu

Michael Siu DesignToday we sample yet more creative talent from the University of Salford, this time with Graphic Design graduand Michael Siu. Having specialised in branding and typography, Michael is now preparing for Salford’s final degree show before entering the industry head-on.

“Design wasn’t my main subject skill whilst at school, however I decided to pursue my creative path by finishing a BTEC in Graphic Design whilst at Riverside College, Widnes. I was happy to be accepted into Salford University, where I could further my studies and experience – being at University has definitely developed me as a designer. I have learnt how to be disciplined within my design and to take risks. I have recently finished my studies, where I am currently applying to companies for some industry experience. I am working on some freelance work whilst trying to set up my own studio within the North West. I have many other dreams and aspirations however I will take them as they come.”

“I love all aspects of design and experimenting new methods, however I do have great passion for branding and typography; for my final major project I branded my own Chinese takeaway that solely specialises in Organic ingredients, I tied in a twist of using visual elements to teach the basics of Mandarin to customers. I am inspired by anything and everything – my homepage is literally a design inspiration page!

In my spare time I like to play Table Tennis – it is nice to be away from the computer screen and to socialise with fellow peers. Having recently purchased a DSLR Camera, I am hoping to excel my photography skills and aim to have a professional photography portfolio in the near future.”
