Sunny Wong

Statement

Hi, I'm Sunny, and I'm an illustrator/designer from Hong Kong, specialising in digital paintings and graphics. I work across editorial, design, and advertising to create thought-provoking images, usually about social issues or just what's happening around the world. On top of being a freelance illustrator, I've worked in companies like PCCW Media Now TV, one of the biggest news firms in Hong Kong, and YesStyle, an online retail company, as a designer. I aspire to be a successful editorial illustrator and graphic designer, working for companies like The New York Times and Riot Games, but also to grow my own brand to be able to sell products of my own personal projects.

Achievements & Experience

I've worked in companies like PCCW Media Now TV, one of the biggest news firms in Hong Kong, and YesStyle, an online retail company. In those companies, I have been involved in projects like designing news article thumbnails, photo editing, external promotional materials, merchandise, etc. Those experiences helped me to be extremely efficient to design due to the tight deadlines that need to be posted live on air or sent to the higher-ups, but also be able to take the initiative to constantly reach out to seniors and other departments to understand their requests better and continuously update them to align the expectation while meeting those deadlines, which translate very well to my own freelance work as well.

Featured Projects:

The Green Sea Turtle and the Yellow Tang

This piece is about the symbiotic relationship, mutualism, between the two animals named in the title, which is when both animals benefit from each other. I merged the theme of music and instruments to highlight their mutual bond and need for one another, their harmony.

Hush

The coronavirus has forced everyone in the world to stay at home severely affected their mental health, whether it be lack of motivation, loneliness, depression, etc., or for others, it limits or silenced the voice we have to speak out. I made this piece to bring this issue to light.

Alone

Because of this pandemic, many of the elderly are stuck at home like us, but unlike us, they're unable to leave their house at all because the virus is more threatening to them, Many don't see anyone for weeks, especially those without families, and could pass away without anyone knowing.

Fear vs Reality

For those with loved ones in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), it can be quite worrying to think that they're in a horrific place that could be their deathbed, alone, but in reality, they're surrounded with nurses that make sure that not only are they're treated, but cared for.

Trapped

Many students are trapped in their dorms, especially the international students who are unable to fly back home during these times, and eventually, their own room can eventually feel like their own jail cell.
