J A Y Q I A N

 

Jay Qian, currently studying for a Master of Industrial Design degree at Pratt Institute in New York, will graduate in Jun 2019.

A problem solver, team player, dreamer, amateur traveler and real designer.

After 4-year working in Graphics and Interaction Design industry from 2012 to 2016, I try to escape from the office and get a further education overseas. Choose Industrial Design as my major to strengthen my design ability from 2D to 3D. Making something by hand with different tools, exploring the form and space, and manipulating varieties of material is quite fascinating. Also, living in NYC and experiencing the different culture help to broaden my horizon.

In my spare time, I absolutely love to travel. I’m almost obsessed with experiencing about new cultures. They’re interesting and provoking.  I learn so much by visiting places with a different culture than my own, I also find that by understanding the culture you can understand why the people are the way they are on such a deep level. That is quite important for me to be a designer.
