Fast 5 with Graphic Designer Vanessa Hung
How did you hear about SSE? What attracted you to the Graphic Designer role?
I was introduced to SSE through a referral from my close friend, who was already part of the organisation. Initially I joined as a contractor for a specific graphic design project, but as the company expanded, I transitioned to a part-time position and later received an offer for a full-time role.
The opportunity at SSE aligned perfectly with my passion for education without having to be a teacher. Through my previous roles as a university design tutor assistant and graphic designer at a print and design company serving schools, I have discovered a deep satisfaction in helping individuals learn and grow through effective visual communication. I have also found gratification in the process of translating complex, text-heavy information into captivating visuals.
SSE's unique combination of these aspects, coupled with the freedom to shape the role, makes it a very exciting and inspiring environment for me to grow as a graphic designer.

Trust the process. Even if you haven’t achieved your desired outcome, understand that it was not a failure but rather a critical part of your process development. It is an opportunity for you to learn from the experience and move forward with new knowledge and an improved approach.
What do you do to unwind after a long day?
Either work on my personal design projects or game with my friends. My me-time is my everything.

Definitely telekinesis for maximum convenience!
