Hello, my name is Siew Chew Yue and I’m originally from Sarawak but now I’m based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I studied Graphic Design at The One Academy. I'm a professional designer who loves to express reality through imaginary drawings, taking sadness or boredom in an oddly joyful form, wanting ugly to be pretty, always going for unexpected twists and doing complete oppositions, a total antithesis.
I like to express complex feelings through drawings and stories, you could see my work always involved intense colorful messy sketches or random overlapping texts on multiple mediums and named oppositely to the actual content behind. As you see, it's my daily: putting antonyms in my sentences, adding values to the pictures randomly and stun people by their meanings behind little by little instead of showing the simple full picture right away, because from what I know, that's how life works, or maybe just mine.
'Have a good day' is one of those extremely cheerful project I've intended with an unpleasantly sad story behind. The name is even resulted from the sad days I had experienced. In reality there will be no perfect person to cheer your day every time you were down. However, things could change and it depends on how we want to perfect company could come in many possible forms if you try to look at things differently.
Despite my skills, I was often judged for my eccentric and complex thoughts that resulted in me unabling to fully blend with people sometimes, which still remains a huge disappointment in my life. However, I did stated I am into oppositions, I hope this huge disappointment could turn into something more than just a life long phase.
