Graphic + Textille Designer
Creative graphic designer from Sydney, Australia. Currently living in London.
My name is Tanya Phan, I am 26 and I am a Graphic/Textile designer based in London – originally from Sydney, Australia. I started designing from a young age with basic pencil and paper drawings, sketching, embroidery, painting, sewing and product design. Growing up in a Vietnamese culture I watched my parents sew garments most nights, which lead to my interest in fashion design.
I completed my Bachelor of Design with a major in Fashion at the Whitehouse Institute of Design in 2012. During my time there I interned for a start up label for a year and a half where I was able to apply my creative skills and design graphics for the brands social media and website.
After completing my degree I worked at Pretty Girl Fashion Group. It is here where my skills truly flourished as I was given the opportunity to manage all creative graphics for the development team. I created a wide range of graphics from monthly style guides, textile prints, technical sketches and trend reports. I worked extremely hard and dedicated myself to creating fresh and engaging material and eventually was given a team of 2 graphic designers to manage.
Now that the formal stuff is out of the way here is a more personal ‘About Me’:
- I am a middle child and I definitely think that middle child syndrome does exist!
- I started using Adobe products when I was 13 and was paid by many of my classmates to retouch their photos.
- I love kimchi…or anything pickled to be honest.
- I have always embraced my Vietnamese culture…we do pretty amazing food right?
- I love colour and print, however you will usually find me dressed in black.
- I think that no animation will ever be better than a Studio Ghibli film.
