Hi there, I see you've stumbled across my portfolio site - welcome! My name is Tunan, and I want to change the world.

I know, big dreams for a little girl.

I'm still trying to find my place in the creative industry, but I believe in the power of design and want to use my skills and passions to work on socially impactful projects that help make the world a better place.

I'm very interested in interactive mediums and spaces, and have recently started to delve into the world of game design + development.

Please feel free to contact me with project + collaboration possibilities, or follow me on my journey:

Optimizely Pride Week 2016

Volunteered my design services to Optimizely's Pride Committee to help out with all the Pride Week office activities, and the parade float. Done over only a couple of weeks, I started off designing t-shirts, temporary tattoos, and an agenda, but then took the iniative to take over the "informational pamphlets" task to put together table-tents and posters with stats and explanations of relevant symbols/flags and people.

Run for your life

In February 2016 I participated in the Pixelles Game Incubator follow-along program to create my first game over 6 weeks. A basic infinite side-scroller jumper game developed from scratch in Unity, coded with C#. I intend to continue improving this game while I further learn to use Unity, but the curent build can be downloaded and played here.

Virginia postcards

Upon arriving in VA, I was unable to find Virginia-specific postcards, so decided to design my own to send to friends and family. Inspired by the colourful trees surrounding the area, especially as we started to head into Autumn.

Art Week Installation

Interactive installation for OUSA Art Week. Based on my final year university project looking at gender stereotypes, but placed in a more public space in order to gauge a response and help develop the project further. The public are invited to create their own characters/stories with the magnetic pieces, or draw on the whiteboard or paper templates. "Imagine if" prompt cards are provided and viewers are encouraged to write their own to help inspire others.

Unicef NZ's General Fund campaign
