Hi!


My name is Yi Mao (“Yi” is pronounced the same as letter “e”) and I’m a visual & content communication designer working with print, digital and 3d media/medium. Currently pursuing Graphic Design MFA at ArtCenter College of Design (MGx).

︎ typography & language, imagemaking, colors, research & critical thinking, branding & packaging, emotions & storytelling, art direction.

I believe in curiosity, authenticity, friendliness, and tolerance. My works are mostly influenced by the relationship among values, intentions, and meanings which fundamentally transforms into branding, typography, content communication, and experience design across multiple media/mediums.

茅逸是一名视觉与内容传达设计师。目前就读于艺术中心设计学院(研三阶段),将于2020年4月底毕业。

语言、字体/字体设计、图像设计、颜色、设计调研、批判性思维、品牌设计、包装设计、个体情绪情感、故事性表达、艺术指导是其个人日常在设计研究上的侧重。在形式和表达上则倾向于使用“立体”作为媒介(书籍、包装、跨媒体、装置设计等等)。

作为一个视觉与内容传达设计师,“好奇与求知欲”、“真实性”、“友善性”、“宽容度”是目前这个阶段设计理念的核心。多数作品均以价值、意向和含义作为一个基本点和出发点,最终引导到每个作品的品牌设计、字体选择、内容选择、颜色的选择、媒介的选择等等。与之而来的是整个设计过程直接或间接地影响到最终受众(客户、消费者)的体验感与体验价值。

近两年内,有幸荣获Pentawards、CORE77、Graphis、GDUSA、艺术指导俱乐部青年组 (Young Ones ADC) 等奖项。2019年在BUCK(洛杉矶工作室)做自由职业设计师,后于夏季加入COLLINS(旧金山办公室)实习。
