Suhui is the Founder of the ASEAN Society in UAL and CURV collective, and a DesignSingapore Associate.

Where did you train, and what did you specialise in?

Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins.

What’s your favourite tool?

It has to be Processing – I love the ethos behind the program. I found it easy to learn, and though it’s a high-level programming language, I’ve still managed to do quite a bit with it.

What techniques do you use most and why?

I’m always open to experimentation and trying new things, but so far I’ve played around with Processing and Arduino projects the most.

What’s your favourite piece you’ve created?

I don’t really have a favourite – hopefully it’s still to come. However, the piece I spent the most time mulling over is my Post-Sound project.

Here Brazilian designer Breno Bitencourt shows you step-by-step how to create a stylish low-poly portrait in Illustrator and Photoshop.

The secret to creating works in this style is working from the best reference photos – and first off Breno reveals how to capture these (using himself as a model). He then reveals how to work these up in Photoshop, then create a vector version in Illustrator.

Breno says you don’t need to be an expert in Illustrator or Photoshop to follow this tutorial, as long as you have a good eye – and a good amount of patience.

You can watch a video of the creative process of designing a low-poly portrait detailed in this tutorial above.
