i am tony yu

Hi there!

I currently work as a Production Specialist at the Sauder School of Business at UBC’s Real Estate Division and in my spare time (if I have any…) I work as a freelance graphic/web designer and web developer.

I have always had a knack of building something out of nothing whether it was constructing imaginative items out of Play-Doh or Lego blocks. Today, I continue to pursue my passion for building by designing numerous pieces in multiple digital mediums as you can view in my portfolio below.

One of my greatest life experiences was being able to live and work abroad as it taught me how to work with different cultures and allowed me to build contacts worldwide. While working abroad, I was exposed to industries that I never envisioned myself being involved in from pharmaceutical recruiting in Japan to commercial printing in Taiwan. Upon my return I was able to resume work in commercial printing and took some time off to further my education which led me to work in a digital agency, natural gas & electric utility and now at one of the most prestigious universities in the world. To learn more about my work experiences and skills you can view and download my resume below.

Lastly, if you have a new project that you need help with or if you are interested in sharing your work experiences abroad (good or bad) I would love to hear from you!
