Fluent in three languages, an unwavering opponent on the tennis court, an affectionate mother to a Boston Terrier named Puck and witty conversationalist, Ming Chew comes to Condit not only with charisma but also with a proficient background in design, rendering and animation.
Originally from Malaysia, Ming landed at the Art Institute of Colorado eleven years ago. There she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Media Arts and Animation. Amidst her tech studies she also quickly learned her 5’3” “genetic disadvantage”, she laughs, would end her basketball career honed back in Asia. She took her competitive traits to the clay courts instead, and when not using her husband as “target practice”, Ming jokes, she wins local tournaments and teaches the next generation.
As for her skills on the computer, Ming’s professional experience ranges from the agency world to the architectural realm. She worked in motion graphics in the Singapore based agency, Multi Media People. Then in the US, she exercised her 3D rendering muscles as the Principal Designer at Smash Visual Media, a commercial architecture design firm.
We’re learning quickly that she’s a total rendering ninja, just what our team of exhibit designers needed. Condit’s exhibit, museum and temporary structures businesses have all grown vastly in the past few years and we’ve done all we can to keep up with the demand. Having Ming on board will help alleviate production pressure and her greenness in the exhibit industry brings fresh perspective to the creative and functional planning as well.
As if her professional and athletic virtues didn’t shed light on Ming’s eclectic life and personality enough, she’s also a musician and cook. Ming is a composer, plays the piano, ukulele, violin, guitar and drums. Ironically however, she’s new to country music. At Condit, music plays a big part of daily life, with a genre corresponding to the days of the week. “Western Wednesdays” as it’s deemed, gets Ming laughing between words while describing the melancholy ballad style as “whining in different rhythms”. In the kitchen she keeps to her roots and is a master home chef of Malay cuisine. She’s also an encyclopedia for Denver’s best Asian restaurants.
We’re a diverse bunch of creatives and doers and we’re confident Ming will only help punch up the zest of our work family. We look forward to having her bring more of a good thing to Condit!
