Fung Yee is a recent graduate of Huddersfield University, with a bold passion and flair for Graphic design and paper craft. Her latest pieces are beautiful, intricate paper sculptures that will leave you in awe. Her work is not only clean and crisp, but also well thought out. She is able to communicate strong messages and concepts through her pieces, making them real show stoppers. With a string of awards already under her belt, this young designer is set to hit the ground running and take the design world by storm. I am totally in love with her pieces and I’m sure you will be too. Here’s what she had to say when I caught up with her recently:
Tell me a little bit about yourself and your work
I am a british born chinese girl with a love for paper-craft. This love started off as a general hobby during my high school days, making some origami cranes. It wasn’t until my final year at University that I took this hobby further and developed it into a refined skill.
Your work has such a clear and distinctive style. Has it been difficult developing this, since you are still a young designer?
Yes, it has been rather difficult discovering this skill and style but with the support and encouragement from my tutor, Mr Brent Hardy-Smith, I managed to really challenge myself and create something new.
What were the inspirations for your latest pieces?
My latest white models are each based on a real event around the world, so you have the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, Montreal Jazz Festival, Day of the Dead, Cannes International Film Festival, Oktoberfest and Gion Matsuri (a Japanese summer festival).
Your work is always new, fresh and experimental. What can we expect to see from your next pieces?Will you be trying anything new in the future, or just perfecting your craft?
Haha, good question Katie, it will be a bit of both really. I would like to take on and learn new areas of design to build on my design skills but simultaneously, I would also like to continue crafting. It’s a difficult question to answer but we will see how things go!
