Lim Qi Xuan (c.1991) is a Singaporean digital designer with an obsession with words, images, and everything in between.
➊I BECAME A DESIGNER
To feed my fascination with information and the ways they shape people and the cities we live in. I am interested in how we consume information in our daily experiences, in which visual cultures and design shape behaviours, trends, desires, politics and our understanding of the world.
➋WHAT FOR, WHO FOR
The internet, for its connectivity, complexity, potential and its humour. In an age saturated with information I believe that designers should be responsible for bringing clarity and meaningful connections to our everyday lives. As a designer, my role is to make complex situations visually clear, comprehensible and actionable.
She graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2018 with an MA in Information Design. She has more than six years of experience in digital design and is currently working in Foolproof.
From non-profit start-ups to multinational advertising agencies, my exposure to different industries, collaborators and modes of working honed a design approach that is eclectic and multi-disciplinary. My six-year experience in design and direction spans across healthcare, education, arts and culture.
Outside of work, I am an avid traveller—both in life and daydream. I also “moonlight” as an artist, making and exhibiting strange miniature sculptures under my artist moniker QimmyShimmy.
