My name is Tang Caiyi, people usually like to call me Celine. Now I am studying Communication Design: Graphic Design at Kingston University. Before coming to Kingston University, I created a design studio called "Celine-D" by myself, mainly undertaking some brand design, illustration, exhibition and visual design. I think a good designer has three roles: negotiator, executor, and persuader. This is what I stick to. I like teamwork to complete some seemingly daunting challenges. This allows me to be more passionate about design. I also like the ups and downs of teamwork. Rethinking is a big point I have gained through studying at Kingston University. It has led me to think from a critical perspective and to accept and feel things. I also like to participate in design related competitions.
In developing this project, I experienced a relatively unfamiliar way of thinking—by reading a book and conducting visual experiments and research on this content. When reading the content in the book, I was quite new to "binary" and I didn't even know how to understand it. But after the group discussion and the tutor’s guidance to write, I have my own feelings. The text I studied was "Glitch Feminism", and what impressed me the most was my experiment with a squeegee on colour palettes. In this process, I let the scraper bear different strength, and running it on the paper represents the pressure expressed by the author in the text. I asked multiple people to do the experiment. This process allowed me to understand how to visualise the text with pictures. Maybe, it is not text. Rather, it is a resonance of the readers. I hope that the images I made will allow readers to be more immersive, record the process, and feel the meaning of the content.
