I want to know a little more!
Sure! I was born in China, grew up in Maryland, US. I studied design at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, where I got a full scholarship to study art. After college, I caught the bug and moved to NYC, where I worked as a designer on everything from tech, art exhibitions, fashion magazines. During this time, I also got very interested in the tech side of design, like font creation and coding. To satisfy my curiosity, I enrolled in a typeface design program at the Cooper Union, where I got a chance to learn everything about fonts and design from the best of the best. During this time, I also taught myself coding. A little later, I got my MFA and started my business.
I have a lot of passion for design, creativity, tech, and entrepreneurship. I hope, through this newsletter, we can be friends. If there is one tip that could help you with something, I will be very happy 🌻
I would love to know more about you. Say hello —> firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @HuaTweets
