Branding

Do you want your documents to be more than Arial and Times New Roman? Do you want business cards with the same colour scheme as your website? Do you want a logo that reflects the technical products and services you offer?

Starting from a unique logo, I can create a consistent look across webpages, report and presentation templates, business cards, digital and physical promo materials, and more. Your products and services deserve a visual identity that is as good as your technical expertise!

Drawing Improvements

Do you have an AutoCAD drawing that isn't scaling properly in viewports? Are you in need of a new title block with your logo? Might a suite of CAD templates improve you and your team's workflow and your odds of being the winning bid?

 

I have 8 years of engineering drafting experience and will take your drawings' appearance and readability

to the next level!

Photography

Are you looking to capture those "aha" moments during a conference or? Do you have a technical product you don't quite know how to showcase?

 

As a scholar and researcher, I have first-hand understanding of typical conference and symposia formats and rhythms. I have photographed 13 science and engineering conferences and symposia to date along with engagements, birthday parties, showers, and family portraits. I can bring the worst volcano at a science fair to life and grab the eyes of a speaker looking down the entire time!

About Me

Michelle Liu

P.Eng, MASc, LEED-GA

Engineer, Designer, Researcher (PhD '25), Law Student (JD '23)

I have always been uncompromising about the way things look on paper and on screens. I used to re-write entire pages of homework in elementary and high school just because I didn't like how narrow of a margin I left or the combination of pen colours I used. In my undergrad, I spent almost as much time formatting reports and designing figures as I did developing technical content. I believe every piece of work deserves a visual identity that is on par with the quality of its content.

Through word-of-mouth recommendations, more and more project teams and startups at the University of Waterloo, my alma mater, approached me for help on visual identity and web design. From there, I took the leap to turn this work into a formal gig and can happily confirm that most organizations (yes, even in engineering) care about looking good!
