I’m Michael Sun, and I’m an award-winning writer and designer.
I currently work in culture and lifestyle at Guardian Australia, where I recently hosted the internet culture podcast Saved for Later. I’ve also contributed film and music criticism, profiles, and essays to The Saturday Paper, The Monthly, Sydney Review of Books, ABC Arts, Australian Book Review, Liminal Magazine, The Age, and many more. I host a weekly show on FBi Radio in Sydney, where I live. Formerly, I was the Culture Editor at Netflix Australia.
I’ve appeared on talks and panels at Sydney Opera House, Sydney Writers’ Festival, Melbourne International Film Festival, Sydney Film Festival, Art Gallery of New South Wales, The Wheeler Centre, 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and Queerstories, among others. I’m also a regular guest on The Project and ABC Radio.
I love anything bold, vibrant, colourful and weird. I’ve produced design work for clients including Canva, Netflix, Samsung, Future Classic, Japanese Wallpaper, and Liminal Magazine. I make posters for parties, friends, lovers, and enemies.
Selected press can be found at The Age/SMH, Liminal, and The Wheeler Centre.
