Teo Kim Heng
His friends may know him for his prowess at golf and fishing, but Kim Heng is only at his best when busy steering Graphic Masters to new heights of success. Beginning his career as a freelance illustrator, little did he know that he would one day be captain of a creative agency that counts many leading public and private organisation among its clients. However, it has been a long 25-year journey for him to get here, one on which he has acquired deep knowledge in creative design, production and client servicing, giving him a rock solid foundation on which to keep the company growing with the times.
He is driven towards achieving excellence, and certainly has a way with the people he would meet on his way. Brendan graduated with a Diploma in Visual Communication and began his career as a designer with a bang, flaunting his creativity with work on premier brands that included Changi Airport Group and Singapore General Hospital. Discovering that he enjoys dealing with people more than ideas, he moved on to marketing real estate before rejoining the design industry as Account Manager with Graphic Masters. Behind his pleasant and modest personality is a heart that beats with a passion for achievements, and a never-say-die attitude that allows for no failure or compromises when it comes to work.

Often drawing inspiration from her personal interest in music, movies and pretty things, she was quietly behind a slew of advertising and marketing campaigns involving prestigious names such as Old Chang Kee, VizBranz, RBS and Sakae Holdings.

Kriscel Diane Go

Always ready to fly in the face of convention and push groundbreaking concepts, he is equally comfortable with designing for advertising, publication or events.
