Andy Chan

Human+Business / Founder

Design Generalist

I'm a design generalist with breadth in the visual and communications design field. During my national service, I built and launched a mobile application for occupational safety under DSTA, and worked on AI/ML projects. I've also founded my own startup in 2018 before closing it down in 2019 due to runway issues. I've had extensive experience in the graphic design field as well.


In the future

The way we teach and the way we learnt has not been optimised perfectly. Through experience, design and philosophy, I want to make things easier to learn and understand whilst not sacrificing quality, especially in the fields of entrepreneurship.
