MARYLAND INSTITUTE COLLEGE OF ART (MICA)
Hi! I’m Max Li, a senior pursuing my BFA in Graphic Design at MICA. I’ve always had a great passion for building visual identities, whether it is creating branding systems or IP characters. I explore creative ideas and solutions often through multidisciplinary approaches. My work covers a wide range of fields, including branding, 3D, UI/UX, illustration, motion graphics, and publication design. Coming from Shanghai, China, I was fortunate to work with several local businesses to help elevate their brands’ unique voices. I’m currently working on my thesis project as well as collaborating with MICA’s Fiber Department to design their Multimedia Event’s identity.

Based on my growing interest in 3D I will probably work on a VR or AR-related project.
