Hi!

My name is Yi Mao, a visual and content communication designer working in print, packaging, digital media, and in physical environments. I have a background in art, photography, and film, which gives my current design work a multifaceted perspective. I care deeply about telling people’s stories and am fascinated by how these stories can resonate emotionally with others. By unfolding stories and creating resonance, I want my designs to help companies and organizations to make meaningful connections to the people that can benefit from what they provide.

我叫茅逸,是一名视觉与内容传达设计师。主攻对书本设计、包装设计、电子媒体、立体环境设计方面的探索。个人对于平面设计多方面的视角得益于从小到大的艺术学习和本科期间在电影、摄影上的训练。个人经历与教育经历也引导自己更加注重通过设计去阐述个体的故事。自己现阶段的设计理念核心是运用设计在人与人之间、人与品牌之间产生真实的共鸣。
