2015

I am passionate about design in all of its forms. I am motivated to create a space that is empathetic to the user, whilst incorporating a sense of individuality within it. High attention to detail is maintained throughout the design process, enabling me to form both creative and unique solutions to problems. My background in psychology has equipped me with a sound understanding of how individuals interact with a space and how it can directly influence the behavior of those within it. I am constantly seeking to expand my knowledge base and in turn, strengthen my design ability.

Everything you’ve touched has been designed, without creative people where would you be?

Throughout my studies with CIT I’ve found a very strong interest for residential design as well as the interior decoration side of things. I’ve always had a curiosity for design whether that be building my own doll houses out of old shoe boxes (thanks mum) as a child, to designing wacky newspaper dresses for fashion in school.

I am fascinated by design. To be able to create spaces that influence the way people feel and interact is a true art form.

My background in graphic design enables me to bring unique and bespoke elements to my designs. I take inspiration from my experiences from both my childhood in Asia and my time spent studying in Australia.

I have always enjoyed and appreciated all things creative and have truly found a passion for design. Design is all around us and influences the way we live our everyday lives. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning and exploring the knowledge and skills involved in the design process and feel it has broadened my mind in a positive way.

I’ve always been interested in design. Good design just feels right and I love now being able to have the skills to be creative and make things actually happen. I want to stretch my mind, get my hands dirty and make a difference in the industry.

I am an interior design student, in my final year of study at the Canberra Institute of Technology. I have received my Certificate IV in Interior Decoration and my Certificate Diploma in Interior Design and Decoration. Currently I am enjoying undertaking an internship 2 days a week with Scape Lift Design, Weston ending in mid-November, around the same time I will receive my Advanced Diploma at my End of Year Exhibition

Pursuing a career in interior design has allowed me to channel my passion for design and aesthetics in a professional context. I love the creative process and am inspired by the transformative potential of interior design which focuses on the interpersonal and design on a human scale.

I am Emmanuel Licayan, a Computer Engineering graduate and currently finishing the Advance Diploma of Interior Design at Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT). I have been working as a Graphic designer for three years before moving to Australia to study Interior design. Currently, I am doing freelance graphic design jobs and mural projects in Australia and Philippines. I have high knowledge in design programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Abode After Effects, Adobe InDesign, AutoCad, Revit, Corel Draw, 3DsMax. Also, have been doing Photography, Painting (Canvas, Walls, Furniture, Shoes etc.), Illustrations, Graphic Layouts, Video presentations and Animations. But with that, I can also be trained with other things without any problem.

My design methodology revolves around the simple clean lines of minimalism without dismissing the importance of luxury and warmth. Using strong architectural detailing to communicate a cohesive result between the interior and exterior without being afraid of creating contrast where necessary.

I'm Bim, I am from Vietnam and I studied at University of Canberra before I came to Canberra Institute of Technology. I found myself in Interior Design at CIT and learning design skills.

I am interested and good at making 3D realistic rendering and 3D visualization in interior design, my goal is to be a good interior designer.
