My name is Mengyi Shao, a graphic designer from China, currently based in Arlington, Virginia.

I am passionate about creating designs that can contribute to changing people’s lives and making the world a better place. I believe empathizing with

the audience I design for is a powerful method for producing effective designs.

Before getting an MFA degree in Graphic Design,

I earned a BA degree in Art and Technology of Exhibition. Besides my love for graphic design, I am interested in architecture, handcraft models,

and geometric / abstract shapes, which sometimes inspires me to create unexpected work.

If you are interested in my work or would like to collaborate, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
