Mylene Ong – Planning Director at BBH Shanghai
"Winnie is one of the most driven and dedicated Art Director I've had the pleasure of working with. She was the creative driving force behind the phenomenally successful juice drink brand Qoo launched by Coca-Cola Singapore. Winnie is relentless and while working on Qoo, she never failed to amaze me with the countless ways in which she approached a brief. It was a joy having her on the team because you know you can always trust her to deliver, beyond what's expected and imaginable."


Hannu Koro – Account Director at Touch Worldwide
"Winnie is an extremely talented Creative Designer and Art Director. Regardless of the size of the project, she brings her sense of style and design into each and every detail of the project. As an Art Director, she is multi-talented, everything from 3D animation to event design, she’s capable of it. Winnie is also probably the fastest and most punctual Art Director I've ever worked with. She is an extremely nice and easy person to be and work with. Working with her is always great fun."


Florence Barkats – Clinical Research Director at Acurable
“Winnie did some branding and creative design work for me when I set up the Bariatric and Metabolic Clinic. She is extremely professional and at the same time, very creative. She has a great attention to detail and will communicate very well. It was an absolute pleasure working with her. I can't wait to do more work with her.“
