Ms.Sidney Li

GRAPHIC DESIGNER

In search of great design and creative ideas is going outside of the box and going beyond my environment to inspire me. My creative inspiration comes from working and living abroad, which as a designer I have grown. I look forward to using my skills towards the company and also bringing in fresh ideas.
