Mun Wong, Design & Marketing Coordinator
Mun is a professional communication designer from Malaysia who has established his forte in corporate branding and visual identity design. He has recently completed his PhD studies at Swinburne University and is currently undertaking design work for non-profit organisations such as Slavery Links Australia Inc. and Camcare, where he brings a wealth of local experience in working with external key stakeholders, taking on briefs and transforming them into intuitive, accessible and high-end visual solutions.
His research work encompasses the field of social online platforms with a focus on leveraging the ubiquitous participatory culture and technology in graphic design learning environments. He integrates both real-world industry and academic practices to develop a new pedagogical framework based on the imperative shifts towards public, virtual critiques in contemporary graphic design learning. In the quest to diversifying his repertoire of research acumen, he currently conducts co-design workshops with university students, and service design workshops with clients and staff at Camcare as part of a social innovation initiative.
