ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY MFA IN GRAPHIC DESIGN
Patchara Charoensiri grew up in Bangkok. His major in high school was mathematics and he wasn’t good at it at all. He found himself good at art and design at the young age so he spent most of his time during his last year in high school preparing a portfolio to get in the best art school in Thailand. He received his Bachelor’s Degree with honors in graphic design from Silpakorn University in Bangkok. After graduation, he worked at J. Walter Thompson advertising agency for a few years before deciding to pursue a Master’s Degree at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. His thesis, Park and Pedal, is about a bicycle sharing program which combined his love for bicycles and design together. Patchara is currently working at Hybrid Design, a San Francisco based design studio.
