Nigel Tang, a graphic designer who graduated from the University of Salford in Manchester, currently lives, works and plays in Singapore.

I love what I do and love doing it well. A strong believer in simple solutions to problems, I adopt a minimalistic style in my works. I work by the belief that “by showing and striving for quality in what you do, you can show that you are striving for quality in who you are”. Late nights, rough hands, tired eyes, are all like badges of honor when you are doing something you love. When a designer has this attitude and thought process engrained, you will see a special level of detail and practice in each design he creates; designs that pure passion brings out.

Attempt Collective (Freelance) x [Feb 11 – Present]
As a co-founder of Attempt Collective, my role includes creating ads, graphical Facebook & blog contents, newsprints, logo and brand identity. I also conducted email campaigns, interviews and liaised with printers. Starting up my own collective has helped me understand most aspects of a design agency and it was a very successful startup as we have garnered much interest after the launch of our collective. During the process, I have also sharpened my skills in screen printing, product development and laser cutting.

TextMiMedia x [Apr 12]
At TextMiMedia, I helped with print advertising design, logo and brand identity for fashion retail & design agency, The Dolls House and jazz singer Lauren Housley. I also helped with layout sketches for brochure designs for Hi-Life diners club. Working with a diverse clientele has given me the much needed exposure on how to communicate with clients, understanding their needs and then going beyond their expectations.
