My Logo Z on rainbow

Hi. I am a native Chinese who's been living in Switzerland for 10+ years.

I studied Scenic Painting* & worked as a scenic painter at Theatre Basel. Then I enrolled to Scientific Illustration at ZHdK and transferred my study later to Design. I graduated form HSLU with a Master of Art degree in Design.

Currently, I’m working as an illustrator, graphic- & web designer on a freelance basis.
I exhibit my paintings & artworks occasionally. The latest was duo-exhibition: "Verzerrungen—Grenzen" with artist Lisa Hutter Schwahn, by Krämerhuus Langenthal, between 24. October and 14. November 2015.
As a self-taught programmer, I focus on the web front-end development & continue honing my skills by practice.

I strive to combine design disciplines with programming technologies, passion with logic to make great stuff.

The structure, the presentation & the functionality are the cardinal concerns of my work. I specialize in web front-end development, jointing together technologies with asthetics & design principles. This unique combination of various competencies allows me to create and to serve digital products at new level of quality and efficiency.
