My name is Liew Qi, and I am from Singapore. Since my name in Mandarin sounded like the numbers 6 and 7, I got the nickname 67 for as long as I can remember. Sixseven was therefore the natural choice for my domain name.
I started learning about digital media when I joined my school's Computer Club in 2002. I "specialized" in Web Design. Aside from doing various school projects and competitions, I earned a little money from freelancing. $150 was a lot of money then for a 15 year old.
In high school (junior college), and subsequently university, computery designy stuff took a backburner. I pursued other activities such as hiphop, soccer, squash, and my Molecular Environmental Biology degree in the University of California, Berkeley. While I was in Cal, I took a Spider Biology class and fell in love with spiders, especially the charismatic Jumping Spider (Family: Salticidae). Their huge anime-like eyes which could see color and their amusing mating dances stole my heart. The logo for Sixseven Visions is my attempt to draw the frontal view of a Jumping Spider, although I am not entirely sure why I drew 3 tufts on top of its head.
I did reignite my interest in digital media when I joined Cal's Innovative Design club's artistic team. It was a good experience catching up with the latest fads in web design and also learning from other designers. I was not restricted by what I could code, as the talented coders would do the necessary support for whatever ideas I had. It was fantastic.
I have never really reached a decent level of proficiency with web design and coding, but I still like to play with various forms of digital media. As I am now outdoors a lot because of work, I like to spend some of my alone free time staying indoors and tinkering with my visual making tools. I like pretty visuals, and I like the little challenges which come with making a website work. Working on Sixseven Visions and random projects is my personal therapy.
Here are some of the tools I tinker with:
In my spare time, I like to create random websites, draw comics, and do science.
