Ambrose Li


My name is Ambrose and I’m a graphic designer, copy editor, translator and visual artist based in Toronto, Canada.

As a graduate of OCAD University’s inclusive design program, I try to apply the principles of inclusive design in my work, but do so discreetly so that the final product wouldn’t stand out as “special.”

How to reach me


Toronto is in Canada’s “Eastern” time zone, which is currently 4 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT−4).

Accessibility statement

This site has been tested for keyboard navigation and with the TalkBack screen reader on Android, although this site is not currently required to comply with WCAG AA in Ontario.

Colour contrast on this site is currently not compliant with WCAG Level AA; this will eventually be mitigated but please read my thoughts on problems with the colour contrast rules.


  1. My reason for choosing Lato for the blog is explained in the blog. Although the issue isn’t relevant for this project I feel there should be some consistency.
  2. Astrologically speaking, even years in the sexagenary cycle are always feminine. Since the zodiac cycle is even-numbered, “year of the ox” is an oxymoron because no such year can be masculine.
