Hello, I’m Sihui, a graphic designer whose practice focuses on storytelling through multidisciplinary formats. My areas of interest include illustration, editorial, motion graphics and branding.

Analysis of her portfolio/branding presence of Alison Zai from my creative industry presentation.
Her main platforms are Instagram and a personal website to showcase her work. She has 217k followers on Instagram and I think the primary reason why people follow her is for her unique style of drawing. Her account has a consistent feed where she posts comics only. Each comic is relatable and makes you want to repost it. Her website has no biography or photo of her face. It is just an endless scroll of comics in her distinctive style, which represents what she does without the need to explain in words. I’m inspired by how her work speaks for itself without needing an extensive introduction.
