HELLO! MY NAME IS YONGHAO YAN.

I was born and raised in China, but educated as a Western graphic designer in the United States. I see and think in multiple ways, which allows me to create new and unique designs.

I received my BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa in 2010. I used to major in Electronic Communication in China. However, the passion and satisfaction I received from my graphic design courses totally changed the direction of academic career. The more I work as a designer, the more I realize that I have made the best decision of my life.
