ABOUT ME

Hello, I am Darren Tan. I graduated from Nanyang Polytechnic as well as 3DMedia Sense School, majoring in Digital Media Design Animation. I have worked in Graphic Design companies as well as an Art Teacher! I last worked as a Creative Graphic Designer in Prestige Edge


I like watching cartoons since young, drawing doodling and I really enjoy learning new things and am very excited to be at work where I always am learning to adapt to each and every student in the studio. I have taken many projects before and am very happy that I am exposed to this exposure in my work. However, I am currently looking into exploring and expanding my knowledge about Graphic Design.

I spend most of my free time dancing to keep my positivity up and energy high as I really enjoy it! I also enjoy playing games and sketching when I have the time!

I am very accustomed to handling and managing many graphics projects at once with design applications. I also bring forth a bright and positive attitude, willingness, and motivation to serve!
