Your friendly neighbourhood marketer/blogger, Alvinology/ Alvin Lim

Alvin is a marketer by day and blogger by night. He is a 100% geek who spends too much time surfing the web.

As a marketer:

He has a First Class Honours degree in Communication Studies from Wee Kim Wee’s School of Communication and Information (WKW SCI), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and extensive experience working in the online industry, specifically in youth, online and social media marketing.

After graduating, Alvin accepted a scholarship from OgilvyOne Interactive (Singapore) and started his working life as a graphic designer. Thereafter, he worked with online youth-zine, UBERTURE as an Art Director/Partner and local youth portal, YOUTH.SG as the Portal Manager. He also have experience managing his own start-ups, Simulacra Production, a video production house and The Simple Folks, a boutique creative agency.

Proficient in both English and Mandarin, Alvin is currently an online marketing manager with omy.sg, Singapore’s first bilingual lifestyle and entertainment news portal. At omy.sg, Alvin is one of the key personnel behind the launch of two successful annual events, Singapore Blog Awards and Singapore Entertainment Awards.

Brands Alvin has worked with throughout his career ranges from global MNCs like American Express, DHL, Danone, F&N, IKEA, United International Pictures, ASUS, KFC, Canon and Nikon to established local brand like The Singapore Flyer, Ocean Butterflies, iKnow, EASB and Bee Cheng Hiang to government bodies like the Health Promotion Board, National Heritage Board and Business China.

As a blogger:

Alvin enjoys the typical geeky stuff – reading random nuggets of gossip and facts you find on the web; watching tonnes of movies and DVDs – be they good or bad; collecting old cartoons and toys he couldn’t afford when he was younger; accumulating truckloads of Japanese manga, Marvel and Dark Horse graphic novels; doing random illustrations, a graphic design or a video… the list goes on.

He also loves traveling and good food.

In short, Alvin has a short attention span and his mind keeps wandering all over the place at any single moment. That’s why he likes the Internet as it allows his scatter-brained nature to showcase itself best. He considers himself as a Jack of all Trades who can juggle marketing, design, illustration, photography and video production all rolled into one.

Despite his random nature, Alvin had the honour of working with established brands like Coca-Cola, Jetstar Asia, Wotif Group and the Hong Kong Tourism Board through his blog –http://alvinology.com.

Alvin is thankful for all he has in life. You are always welcome to shower him with more wonderful stuff like sponsored travel and interesting event invites. 🙂
