Meet Kelly Yiu – Junior Digital Designer At Fashion Enter


Q What time does your alarm go off?

K: 5:30am, my alarm is off during the weekend!

Q What’s a typical day like for you?

K: Usually my cat will wake me up early, meowing for food. Normally I would get myself ready for work, feed the cat and fish. I leave home at 6:11am to go to work. During the weekends, I will go for a run in the afternoon and chill really.

Q Tell us about your career route, where did it all start for you?

K: I came to the UK when I was 17 to do a degree in Media Studies. After 3-years studying at the University of Surrey, I realised I was more into graphic design. I went to do a postgraduate diploma in visual communication in London College of Communication in 2018 and started working here as a Junior Digital Designer in March this year.

Q And did you spend any time completing work placements / experience?

K: I spent 2-years in internships working as a social media coordinator both in the UK and Hong Kong. I also spent 6-months working as a graphic design intern for Elle magazine in Hong Kong.

Q What key skills / attributes would you say are essential for this role?

K: Creativity, attention to detail and teamwork

Q What is your most memorable work moment?

K: When I was studying in LCC, I had to complete a 3D animation from scratch in 3 weeks. When I started the project, I did not have much knowledge in 3D modelling and dynamics, so I guess it was an achievement to get it done.

Q What is the worst part of the job?

K: Tight deadlines.

Q Best piece of advice you have been given?

K: ‘Life is too short the world is wide.’

Q Is there anyone in the fashion sector that you think is inspirational?

K: Chanel

Q After work you like to…

K: Cuddle with my cat and my 3 pugs.
