Jaie Ramlee, Graphic Designer & Illustrator l Johor, Malaysia
When I was a kid, I’ve dreamt about becoming someone who can draw. I like to see beautiful things. Anything in a unique form and composition. I like to play with colors. But at that time, I had no idea what was Graphic Design, Illustration and whatnot.
I always imagined that my artwork will be everywhere- TV, posters, billboards. As time goes by, I learned that beauty is not something that needs to be huge or looks perfect. Art is not something that always comes with full colors or patterns.
Like human beings, the beauty of art comes from within- within the artist himself and the content of the artwork.
Having a sense of history, understanding people and playing with basic theories of art will make your artwork “big” and make you aware of new ways to look at things.
I didn’t have any exposures in art and even my family members come from different backgrounds. But that didn’t stop me from chasing my dream to be in the art and creative industry.
I obtained my Diploma in Graphic Design & Digital Media from UiTM Sri Iskandar and Bachelor Degree (major in Illustration and minor in Fine Art) from UiTM Shah Alam respectively.
I pursue my career as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator based in my homeland in Batu Pahat, Johor.
I like to capture almost anything by sketching as it translates words and emotion into visuals. It satisfies me to visualize what people love to see through my passion.
My sketchbook is my best friend cum tutor, as I find sketching as the best way to generate ideas and improve my drawing skills.
