Communication Design School of Design Singapore

Doreen Goh (She/her)

I’m a graphic designer working mainly with print mediums in areas like editorial design, illustration and branding, and recently I have been learning new skills in digital mediums like animation. As an introvert, design is a platform for me to express my emotions and experiences as well as a way for me to help others to be heard through communicating their messages creatively.

In my free time, I like to bring my stories to life by illustrating on my iPad and watch Masterchef to admire the great dishes I’ll never get to eat.

Sounds of Life

Sounds of Life

Have you ever found a song that truly resonated with you? Maybe you’re going through a sad period and this ballad makes you cry. Or you’re feeling angry with the state of the world and this song encapsulates that. Music is a reflection of emotions of experiences, and perhaps if we are more open to listening to other music genres, we might just find the right song for us. This book is a collection of songs that reflect the episodes in a young adult’s life. It introduces songs of various genres through different categories of life experiences. The aim of this book is to get people to keep their mind open to music genres, and who knows? You may find the right song in unexpected places.


The book is designed and printed to be like a vinyl record album, with 2 records inside for Side A & B.


The book is segregated into chapters of our lives– Identity, Purpose of Living, Love and Pain


The introduction of songs and the reflections behind the artist. The lyrics are written organically to give a human touch. There is also a spotify code that leads straight to the song.


This certain illustration is birthed from "The Reason I Wanted to Die" by Nakashima Mika. Human death, though tragic, is still a blessing to nature.

Sound of Silence

This is an interpretation of "The Sound of Silence" by Simon & Garfunkel
