Hi there! 

My name is Laura Keung and I am a Graphic Designer currently based in Munich. I am a passionate, curious, motivated designer with a strong interest in Publication Design, Brand Identity and experimentation. 

My process is pragmatic, starts with careful and critical analysis of the project to understand priorities and goals. My main intention is to create a functional product that will exceed expectations. Through research and close collaboration with clients I create conceptual, visually interesting, long lasting solutions. I am always interested in learning and exploring new processes to find smart solutions. Hard work and high standards are some of my attributes. 

I had the opportunity to live in Kentucky, Toronto and Salzburg. This experience has given me a chance to understand different cultures and behaviours resulting in developing an open mind to other views and adapting to different environments and needs.

Design Approach

My approach to design is pragmatic. Clarity, simplicity and design with purpose is key to communication. I create work that is conceptual, interesting and impactful. I make a genuine connection with the audience and put myself as if in order to solve a problem creatively. 

I believe I should make the best work I can by producing iterations, experimenting with different mediums and producing design that keeps people stimulated and interested through a visual dialogue.
