“One of the highest levels of logic and storytelling I have seen in a creative.” - Koh Cheng Guan, Exec Creative Director, WPR Asia

Tan Si Qi wears many hats. She is a self-taught art director, featured illustrator and (learning) 2D animator for Fortune 500 brands and music artists.

 

In the morning, she is a designer at VaynerMedia Singapore, a full-service digital agency built for the now. At night, she doodles her ideas and shares them on her illustration Instagram.

For the past 3 years, she has been working on campaigns and projects for premier design studios and agencies in Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong and Germany. 

Coming from a background in Chemical Engineering from Temasek Polytechnic, Si Qi did a massive career switch when she was 21. She created an illustration brand for herself called "Laugh And Belly". From proposal to project delivery, she's involved in every step to ensure creative vision and execution is aligned with her clients' goals, and their customers' needs.

Since creating Laugh And Belly, she has also explored other forms of expressing her creativity through award-winning character concept art (Boba Blacksweet), jewelry design (Monsters Alike) and personal design projects.

Si Qi's illustrations have also been featured in MCCY Singapore, Yahoo!, BoredPanda, The Straits Times, Channel 8 World News and Mashable Asia.

Some career highlights include speaking and teaching at Apple Singapore flagship's store and, being headhunted to animate for Lukas Graham's "Scars" (she pinched herself twice to confirm she's not dreaming).

Do email her if you're keen to work with her on your upcoming projects or campaigns. She'll be delighted to get back to you ASAP.
