I’m a Chinese (bilingual graphic designer × researcher × reader&translator) traveling between Shanghai and Melbourne. I work with design-conscious commissioners on progressive, unique, and systematic solutions through bilingual graphic design, art direction, branding & visual identity design, editorial design, environmental graphics, and design research. My interests also lie in conceptual and experimental design practice through methods of social practice art and speculative design with multidisciplinary content. In addition, I’m involved into design teaching and workshops, visual research, and curating as well to explore the boundaries of the design galaxy. 
在墨尔本与上海两地间实践的视觉传达设计师,澳大利亚 Monash 大学艺术设计与建筑学院传达与跨学科设计荣誉硕士,主要实践基于以中英双语文字及图形符号为基础的视觉信息设计、品牌与视觉识别形象设计、艺术指导、编辑设计和展览视觉设计等。借此与具有设计意识且将设计作为驱动力的委托方合作,创造具有独特性和系统性且面向当代与未来的设计方案。与此同时,也进行或参与工作坊等教学活动、视觉文化和设计相关的研究、策展以及翻译与写作的实践。
