My name is Liankun Sun and you can call me Kyle. I am a junior graphic designer with an extensive knowledge in the principles of Graphic Design, specifically in packaging, printing, web design, brand development and motion graphics. I am a quick learner, team-player as well as a detail-orientated person.
These three software programs are essential to designers. Personally, I use InDesign for all my work in relation to typography. I use Illustrator and Photoshop when creating design elements such as images, patterns, icons, logos, etc.
Based on my knowledge of HTML and CSS, I can modify web templates downloaded online. Adobe Muse is like Illustrators while it can also be coded. Adobe Edge is a mixture of Adobe Flash and Adobe After Effect. Personally, I haven’t used Muse or Edge in a while.
While working for TechTAP, my Adobe After Effect’s skills improved tremendously. I learned how to change an animation based on the description. Through organizing the After Effect file, my organization skills have increased and I learned how to search a file through the use of a great naming system. I also learned Cinema 4D through an online course though I am not as proficient anymore.
I’ve only had two opportunities to design an app, but the two programs on the right are easy to learn and use. In my opinion, I think Flinto can reach a better result.
TechTAP is an information technology and services company. While working there, I did internal videos for the three companies on the left. (Since these videos are classified, I can’t upload any videos or images on my website.) Mostly, I worked on CIBC videos. They have a lot of statistic videos which I made by the description in After Effect. While at TechTAP, I learned how to read and modify coding in After Effect.
Working for Tom* was an exciting time. It wasn’t about the type of events I could attend, but instead the work my manager trusted me with. I also found the type of work I was interested in. One night I received an email around midnight telling me they needed a hair and make-up book by 6 a.m. the next morning. With only a few hours to complete my task, it was quite an intense but satisfying moment.
