Meet the Mangos – Willie Li

It’s Friday, so let’s have a little chit chat with one of our designers at SplitMango.

Willie - Designer


SplitMango: Hi Willie, I want to ease our audience into this conversation with an simple question. What’s your name?

Willie: William. I prefer Willie though that’s what my friends and colleagues call me.

SplitMango: What drew you to design?

Willie: Since I was a little kid, I have always been fascinated by how line and shape can be used the communicate messages. It became a hobby for me and most of my design knowledge was self-taught. This interest has driven me to a career path in this industry. Over the years of learning and work, I have developed a good understanding of typography, colour, visual hierarchy and user experience design principles and disciplines.

SplitMango: So how long have you been working at SplitMango?

Willie: Four years.

SplitMango: What’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not designing?

Willie: If the weather is nice, like the summer weather in Vancouver, I’d like to just sit on the beach and enjoy the sunshine… taking in the beautiful ocean view.

SplitMango: A beautiful view indeed. If there was one thing you could change about the Internet what would it be?

Willie: I think it’d be great if the Internet could be accessible to every person in the world.

SplitMango: I definitely agree. Willie, it’s been a pleasure talking!

Willie: The pleasure is mine.
