“X”, DAE@SaloneSatellite

Visual Identity, Poster Design, Radio Production

April 2023



Visual concept, identity and poster design for “X”, the collaboration between Elevator Radio and Design Academy Eindhoven (DAE)’s in-house editorial team that produced a week-long radio programme of public debates, discussions and interviews at Salone del Mobile in Milan.

The identity is based on a graphic representation of the “X”, with negative spaces in the silhouette of a headphone jack and a pen nib. Embracing “X” as infinite possibilities, the poster is designed as a canvas open for various interpretations, featuring illustrations drawn by friends and members of the DAE community.

A Neoliberal Lexion For Immigrants

Artistic Research, Editorial Design

September 2023 – April 2024



Editorial design for my master’s thesis “A Neoliberal Lexicon For Immigrants – A dissection of expressions that capture how immigrant creative workers navigate their life and career in American society”. The thesis delves into pervasive phrases in a creative worker’s professional career, and analyzes them in-depth, in order to explain how contemporary language performs neoliberal dynamics, and in turn, the impacts of neoliberal culture and policies on the rights of creative workers from East Asian countries in the United States. These immigrant workers face compounded challenges due to visa restrictions, language barriers, cultural differences, and the lack of family support.

Through their partnerships with organizations such as the United Nations, Women’s March and NARAL, the lab has hit 50B views with over 5k pieces of content on Giphy since its founding in February 2020. It produces and delivers gifs about pressing issues such as racial justice, gender equity, LGBTQ rights, climate change, COVID vaccination, universal healthcare, and much more.

As a creator in the lab, alongside with over 50 artists, I contributed gifs for the lab on a daily basis.

LA vs Hate is a community-centered creative campaign to encourage and support all residents of Los Angeles County to unite against, report, and resist hate. I made over 100 animated pieces and designed a website for this campaign to help LA’s diverse neighborhoods and communities share the message and stand up against hate together.

Safer At Work provides free resources to help businsses across the Los Angeles County communicate to their customers and employees, especially essential employees, to take critical steps in order to operate as safely as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.
