Social Oriented Project

Hello, I am Roberta. Welcome to my portfolio website. I have completed my design education at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. I'm enthusiastic about design, innovation, and marketing. My objective is to explore different cultures, exchange ideas, and utilize my creative skills in design fields. You can contact me via LinkedIn if you are interested in my work or have an exciting opportunity you want to share.

Below is a short list of my work :]

Social Oriented Project


Homeless Shelter

2013 | Kraft Paper | 1200 x 2400 x 1000 mm

This creation is a foldable shelter designed for homeless people, allowing them to open and close it without obstructing pedestrians on the road at night. The objective is to provide an affordable living space for those in need. The design incorporates hexagonal holes, which allow for light and ventilation.


Misfit Fruits LAB

2019 | Exhibition Design | Experience Design

The idea behind Misfit Fruits LAB is to challenge people's attitudes towards misshapen food and explore the concept of perfection and imperfection in relation to food. Through the use of all five senses, the project highlights interesting facts about misshapen fruits. The main goal of "Misfit Fruits LAB" is to educate people about sustainable ways of consuming food products.


Creation of E-waste

2010 - 2013 | Electronic Wastes, LEDs

Improper disposal of electronic waste can release harmful pollutants that damage the environment. My work focuses on upcycling electronic waste and giving it a new purpose, aiming to make things useful again. Over the past three years, I have collected electronic waste and created household products to restore value to these items. Perhaps, I will continue to develop this work in the future.


Bakery Hearts

2016 | Creative Promotional Campaign

The Ang Mo Kio Family Service Centre in Singapore has been operating this social enterprise since 2010. They employ women from low-income families and provide training in baking and social skills. My objective was to boost sales by offering customers the option to personalize their cookies using a generator. I proposed creating a system that can custom-make cookies within 5 minutes.

Perfect Pitch

2019 | User Interface & User Experience Design

Publication Design
Typography Design

Publication Design



2018 | Publication | 200 x 200 mm

My work delves into preconceptions by examining how social media has influenced our thoughts and perceptions of landmarks, presenting an unrealistic and idealized image of popular tourist attractions. It merges expectations with the actual reality of well-known landmarks, scrutinizing the manner in which we consume and interpret information through social media.


Visualising Future A.I. Scenarios

2020 | Publication

This brief focuses on visualizing potential future scenarios of artificial intelligence adoption and implementation in professional service firms in the UK. I examined how the concept of Platform Domination in 2030 scenarios could be represented through publication, illustration, and information design. My goal was to simplify a research paper and enhance its readability.


City Window 360° Book

2017 | Digital Fabrication & Publication

City Window was a collaborative project between Japanese illustrator Yosuke Yamauchi, Lab by Dimension Plus, and our team. Together, we created a 360° book featuring a series of illustrations by Yosuke Yamauchi. In addition, we organized laser cutting and Coptic stitching bookbinding workshops to teach individuals how to utilize a laser cutter in crafting their own 360° books.


Victoria Line Typologies

2018 | Publication

This typologies publication documents the diverse tile designs found along the Victoria Line. While in London, I noticed that each station had its own distinctive tile design.

My project aimed to capture the interactions between people and objects on the Victoria Line, illustrating the relationship between the stations and the travelers.

Typography Design


Akashi Typography

2015 | Posters, Magazine | A3, A4

Calligraphy is a distinctive blend of words, imagery, and aesthetics. Akashi, a Japanese whisky brand established in 1984, served as the inspiration for my project. The concept involved depicting the brand's rich history through meticulously painted calligraphy artworks. By combining two words in the illustrations, the objective was to convey the dynamic narrative of the brand and emphasize the exceptional quality of Akashi.

New Balance Transforming Your Everyday

2018 | Repositioning Strategy

This project aims to convey the concept that "you are more than just one ideal" and that you have the ability to embrace multiple identities. It juxtaposes two contrasting environments, such as running in the outdoors, and seamlessly transitions into a more relaxed social setting. By incorporating the element of the logo, we have created an enchanting ambiance that reflects a sense of magic.


Martini Let's Make Time

2020 | Advertising Campaign

The objective of this project was to promote the importance of spending time with friends during MARTINI TIME.

It offered an accessible and efficient way for anyone to design and create their own molds within just one hour.

Walk With Me

The concept of my work is "city explorer," where I uncover hidden aspects of the community. During my visits to Manor Park, I observed London from a unique perspective, allowing me to discover hidden people and objects. As humans, we have limitations and cannot physically penetrate walls. To overcome this, I experimented with photography from a peeping angle, capturing glimpses of what lies beyond the walls through small gaps.

In 2016, I had the opportunity to attend a workshop organized by the Hong Kong Origami Society. The workshop focused on teaching various methods and structures of paper folding. Through origami, I discovered the art of creating different forms and shapes using just a sheet of paper.

Inspired by this newfound knowledge, I folded a special nest for my cockatiel.
