Cultural influences:
I am strongly influenced by Eastern culture as I have lived in Taiwan since I was born. I consistently think about bringing stories of my own culture into my projects, such as using Oracle or traditional royal patterns as features of my projects. Chinese typography is also one of the areas that I am deeply interested in.
Artistic influences:
In my study of design, the works from Bauhaus constantly remind me to be earnest in my design. On the other hand, I am inspired by Fauvism's characteristic colours and lines and insights raised by contemporary artworks. I especially admire the world-known artist Man Ray, an expert in contemporary photography and Dadaism. His works using found objects, human bodies and rayographs are always an inspiration of my work. As a designer, I believe that one of our responsibilities is to let the public amaze the world in distinctly various aspects.
