Hello I’m Hizda, a design student based in Singapore. My designs are often fueled by the need for a conclusion to a genuine problem, then exploring this route through visual means. I craft a tailored message for my target audience and often use my projects to create prompts for self-reflection; I believe everything starts from within a person.

A large part of my process is also in keeping an open mind; to not come to a quick conclusion to anything, be it a piece of news or information. To be able to measure and estimate that data, based upon values and ethics, which is part of critical thinking, sets up my initial frame of creative thought process.

Recently my creative curiosity introduced a newfound interest in illustration. Exploring different visual ways and providing an abundance of dark and gritty images, often inspired by pop culture and my own self-reflection. You can see more of my visual experiments with different mediums and aesthetic routes here.

Volunteer project       2015
A self-initiated project that requires us to research on who to help and how to help. In groups of 4, our solution was to create food hampers for the ones living in one room flats as many struggles to make ends meet. We sourced and bought easy to cook food. We also hand packed them with handwritten notes as encouragements. This project taught me project management and empathy.
