ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY
I am Yijing Yan, a graphic designer from Guangzhou, China currently based in San Francisco. I am passionate about creating designs that spread a positive message and resonate with people. While having a strong interest in vivid and quirky visual style, I appreciate anything that inspires me. Before deciding to pursue an MFA degree in Graphic Design, I earned my BA in Advertising. When I’m not designing, you can find me watching musicals or expanding my vintage postcards collection.
