Hey Phimong! Tell us a bit about you.

Hi, you can call me Gib. I’m from Bangkok, Thailand. I’ve been in Australia for nearly 4 years now. I’ve completed a Cert IV in kitchen and bathroom design before studying with TGDS. I didn’t see myself as an interior designer, that’s why I joined the school. I’ve passion for art and design and I really love to see my works in mock ups. It feels awesome to see my work exist in real life.

Gib Phimong - Personal Identity Design

What or who inspired you to be a designer?

Myself! As I mentioned, I have a passion for art and design. I used to study more traditional art, like drawing and painting. I became interested in graphic design field because it allowed me to still express my creativity. Now that I’ve finished with my studies, I want to continue with it as my career.

What are you up to in the design world at the moment?

I completed my last module last week and now I feel a bit lost. I have no idea how to step out into to the design world.

What is your favourite part of the design process?

I like doing mock ups. I like to see my work progress from mock ups to full product design. It feels realistic.

I love the freedom of thinking, there are no rules in the design world. You can express what’s in your head into your work.

Doner Summer - Brand Identity Design and Campaign

Tell us anything you would like to about your featured works.

I like doing online briefs in my free time. Most of the works I have completed come from these online briefs. I think it’s good way to learn and practise before stepping out into the design world. It helps you to build your portfolio this way.

Whats your dream design job?
Don’t hold back!

I like branding, packaging and advertising. If I have a chance to try all aspects in this field I wouldn’t hold myself back!

“Keep on practising, you won’t be a professional in a day.”

What would you say to someone about to embark on their own journey in design?

I would tell them to follow their dream! If you really have a passion for it, go for it! Do not let someone put you off from your dreams. Design is beautiful and you will see your life in a different aspect.
