Ya Gao ( Lily )

Graphic Designer / Photographer / Illustrator

 

When it comes to graphic design, audiences are mostly fickle. Since there is too much information online and offline, people skip over information quickly. Because of this it can be difficult to draw an audience’s attention and even harder to engage them for a long period of time. I believe the little things in our daily life have the potential to remind people of important things, forgotten, yet eternal feelings. We can profoundly moved by these familiar yet forgotten memories.

My works from school days were focus on the creation and innovation, I believe good ideas are better than the meaningless technology dazzle. Although most of my internship and jobs are related to the network technology, I still have passion on printing and paper products. I hope I could be a designer with artisan spirit. I want to do the design with emotion, have stories behind my photos. Art is my lifestyle.

公众面对平面设计大多数是浮躁的。在线上线下信息爆炸式的今天,人们只是匆匆一瞥而过。想要吸引大众的眼球是很难的,而要长时间的吸引则难上加难。我相信我们日常生活中的细微事物往往能唤起我们回忆起一些遗忘的事物以及很久不曾有过的感受。而我们常常会被以往的回忆深深感动。

学生时代的作品专注于创意与创新理念,我相信好的创意胜过摆弄技巧(但提升自己的软件水平也是必须的)。虽然以往的实习以及工作经历大部分与网络科技有关,但我对印刷及纸制品的兴趣也很浓厚,对匠人精神十分钦佩,也希望自己做得到。我想要做有温度的设计,拍有故事的照片,艺术是我的生活方式。
