Hello! Hello! My name is YEOH Kok Cheow (KC Yeoh for short). Originally from Malaysia, I have been calling Singapore home since 2003. My passion in design which led to teaching has taken me from the foggy city of San Francisco in California where I earned my BFA and MAIA degrees to the provincial town of Magnolia in Arkansas to sample what the deep south is like, to desolate Lubbock in Texas for my PhD, and historical Savannah in Georgia, USA before settling in Singapore where I was being recruited to help set up the Visual Communication department at the School of Art Design and Media in Nanyang Technological University. I now teach graphic communication courses at both Master's and undergraduate levels at the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
As a practicing graphic designer and academic practitioner, my research is drawn from new media practice through teaching, writing, publication, exhibition and curation of creations across many other art, design and media platforms. My visual interest involves the integration of social message in the form of activism with themes within humanistic, social, religious, commercial, educational, and spiritual contexts to facilitate social tolerance and communal understanding particularly in the following areas:
- Visual Communication
- Brand consulting
- Development of visual identity systems
- Environmental graphics (Signage)
- Publication design
- Package design
- Advertising & promotional campaigns
- Experience design
This site is a record, archive, notebook and sketchbook of my years as a student, graphic designer, and now a lecturer. In addition to teaching and the continuing practice of design, I also conduct training for design related classes, exhibit internationally, present at conferences, publish in journals and have won awards over the years.
Drop me a line or two if you're interested in my work or my services.
KC Yeoh, Ph.D.
