Coupling diverse media such as 3D motion, fashion, photography, graphic design and music, Yi Su (苏大侠 in Chinese) is a creative centipede. Time to get one cut above in 3-Diabolique as Temper takes five with Suki Design.
Through her work people can feel Su’s strong personal style convictions based on surrealism and exaggerated coloring. Add to the mix a combining of ideas from various media such as 3D Animation, Film Maker, Photography and Graphic Design, and we are dancing with the Devil.
In a wholesome way.
Even spotting some typical “Asian” (forgive us), Issey Miyake shaping and draping at times, Temper is intrigued and leans in for a High Five with Su herself.

Take One! The SUKI DESIGN aesthetic
Su: My aesthetic is one that incorporates a lot of oversized romance with a flash of soft-spoken color quirk and shapely edge throughout every collection. Art is from life and remains above life. I spent most of my life in Asia, and the culture unconsciously yet definitely influenced me.
Take Two! And we quote, “Art should never be stuck in a museum, but must be a presence in life.”
Su: Different textures, shapes, sounds, and colors all have their own language. My aesthetic is to keep exploring the edge of human sense and imagination. Spot the scenery audiences usually cannot uncover and then find a way to tell the story.
Take Three! How does the design process evolve?
Su: Some art aims to help people understand their inner world, some design is meant to help people solve their problems. As far as my personal work goes, I believe it starts from interest and persistence; the finish line depends on the artist itself: Does this work follow the original propose and does it show what I want to tell?
Take Four! The Digital vs Artisanal Debate
Su: Financially and deadline-wise willing, I prefer the artisanal. For now, though, I mostly go digital.
Take Five! Your China Perspective
Su: From my own perspective, I believe the next five years to come will witness an increasing number of Chinese traditional cultural elements shown in innovative, fashionable, tech-induced modern ways.
3D Motion, Fashion, Photography, Graphic Design, and Music make for one diabolical and deviceful new fashion landscape.
