I am much bolder than I appear.


AìChī means food-lover in Chinese. I love trying new food, especially in unexpected combinations, and seeing what happens in the extremes. There is nothing wrong with trying fries with ice cream.
     It’s the same with graphic design. I find I’m prototyping in all dimensions and exploring relationships between media, architecture, and design in an interdisciplinary way. With each project, I look for ways to bring my work into a dimensional world, allowing people to experience it in new and exciting ways. My desire is to have a multidisciplinary practice with no boundaries.

I'm available as well for freelance works, collaborations and opportunities.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch. :)
