I LIKE TYPOGRAPHY

I have a mild obsession with anything type. My occupational hazards include absentmindedly identifying typefaces on store signage, ads and promotional materials, and narrowing my eyes at bad kerning.

 

I LIKE CHAOS

I believe in organized messes. And while I am a firm devotee of negative space, there are times I enjoy exercises in creating chaos.

 

I LIKE PATTERNS

I like creating seamless patterns and adding "easter eggs" to my design because I figure that someone, somewhere out there, might actually appreciate the tiny details that make the bigger picture tick.

 

I LIKE IRREVERENCE

Because having a sense of humour is essential to a long and healthy life. And mostly because I've been told I have no sense of humour.

 

HI THERE. MY NAME IS LIZZAEH.

THIS IS SOME OF THE STUFF I DO.

 

ABOUT ME

#Lizzy Lee lives in Singapore and is a jill of all trades. While certainly a master of none, she makes up for it by being irritably enthusiastic and unstoppable once she starts working on a project. Lizzy also accidentally ended up making films because her mom didn't want to her to take a Fine Arts degree and Communication was the lesser of two evils. She ended up with a First Class (Honors) in Communication Studies (Broadcast & Cinema Studies and Advertising) from the Wee Kim Wee of Communication & Information; which none of her employers or clients have ever bothered to ask her about.

    THAT I LIKE

    #

    I like type. And I possibly (just possibly) like it a little more than the hipsters who splay quotes about unrequited love on top of a conveniently digitally lomo-ed picture of the ocean.

    Some of my favourite fonts include Akzidenz-Grotesk, Avenir, Museo, Garamond, League Gothic, DIN, Quicksand... and if I go on I'll be giving too much away. (I'd bet you were expecting me to say Helvetica, didn't you? Hah!)

  • FILMS

    I ENJOY

    #

    My taste in movies is as hard to pin down as a definitive style in my design. I enjoy very few films and spend very little time at the cinema.

    I do enjoy a range of Quentin Tarantino films. But I also watch every Pixar movie to hit the cinemas (my recent favourites being Tangled and Brave). And another movie that always cracks me up is Ben Stiller's Zoolander. I know. Weird.

  • PEOPLE

    THAT INSPIRE

    #

    We all have our muses. Two of the greatest are definitely Saul Bass and Paul Rand.

    Some of my favourite designers/artists include the ever talented Jessica Hische, Mattias Adolfsson whose work is utterly amazingly insane, Mary Kate McDevitt because like wow, Gemma Correll because she makes it look so easy, and the comics of Grant Snider.

  • BOOKS

    THAT SHAPE ME

    #

    I read voraciously as a kid and tore through almost every single Enid Blyton book in existence. Really.

    As I grew older, the fantasy streak continued and the likes of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett remain my favourite authors to this day. I also love Markus Zusak's The Book Thief, Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried and most forms of war literature. For a long time, my favourite poem was also WB Yeat's An Irish Airman Foresees His Death.
