Artist Spotlight: Liu Chia-Lung

Animator

We have had the pleasure of working with Liu Chia-Lung since 2012, tagging him in on everything from quick fixes to larger creative projects. Lung loves a good challenge, which makes him particularly valuable in building and customizing the toolkits our clients rely so heavily upon. His ability to animate just about anything in 2D or 3D is a talent to behold.

But on top of the technical skills, Lung brings passion, dedication and curiosity to his projects.

We feel lucky to have Lung as a core member of our team, and his work certainly reflects the quality and attention to detail we deliver at BigStar.

Q&A with Lung -

Why do you spend your time doing motion graphics?
To me, motion graphics is the best way to inform people what’s going on around the world. Therefore I enjoy providing my perspective and solution to send out the message and raise people’s awareness.

What makes you love what you do, if you love it?
Besides challenging myself on design, I love how I can learn more about the world during the process.

What side of the design/graphics world are you looking in on/what makes you different?
I am really interested in the combination of design, marketing, cultures and education in general, and try to use a creative mind to solve or help social issues.

What is your ultimate goal?
My goal is to travel as much as I can and use design to share my observations. I want to explore what I have learn so people can learn something from me (with a nice visual presentation!)

How long have you been doing what you do?
I will say — not too long. I was really into crafting, screen printing and traditional fine art instead of design or filming before college, but it did polish my eyes on space, texture and material. Then after couple years of training in digital media, I became who I am now.

How do you want to be remembered?
A person who knows lots of things and was able to share in creative way.

What influenced you?
Pop art, different kinds of printing skills, toys, games and in recent years, social studies and digging deeper into Taiwanese cultures.

What are you most passionate about professionally? What most excites you about your work & the contribution you can make?
Having the ability to build connections between subjects and audience and learning from the stories.
