Hello! Nice to meet you. I am Yihan :)
I am an interdisciplinary designer and strategist in technology innovation, branding communication, and playful interaction. With research and collaboration, my projects blend design strategy, user experience, and engineering to create physical and digital products that look for sustainability and innovation.
Currently, I am working on my design studio Paperly which is dedicated to unlocking the boundless potential of paper applications in science, engineering, design, and art. It is all about paper. Feel free to reach out anytime. Let's unfold creativity together!
