Harrowing Journeys (UNICEF report)
Young migrants and refugees set out to escape harm or secure better futures – and face staggering risks in the process. For children and youth on the move via the Mediterranean Sea routes to Europe, the journey is marked by high levels of abuse, trafficking and exploitation. Some are more vulnerable than others: those from sub-Saharan Africa, those travelling alone, those with low levels of education and those undertaking longer journeys. These and more findings come from a joint report by UNICEF and IOM analysing the journeys of some 11,000 young refugees and migrants between 14 and 24 years old along the Eastern and Central Mediterranean routes to Europe. The analysis reveals the interplay of factors – from origin and education to the trajectory and duration of their journey– that render them vulnerable to abuse, exploitation and trafficking. This report focuses on those heading to Europe – but echoes of their experiences and testimonies can be found among young migrants and refugees around the world.
A child is a child
Among the millions of children on the move worldwide, many – including hundreds of thousands of unaccompanied children and adolescents – undertake dangerous journeys. This report shows how the lack of safe and legal pathways for refugee and migrant children feeds a booming market for human smuggling and puts them at risk of violence, abuse and exploitation. Building on recent UNICEF policy proposals, it sets out ways that governments can better protect these vulnerable children.
COP 25th Global Climate Change Conference
＊Please note: Personal project. This project has no affiliation with COP's brand. Global Climate Change is not a new topic. Our governments have plans to resolve it for years, but they did not have many actions. Most of people gradually lost their interest on this topic. As designers, we have the ability and responsibility to arouse people’s interest again. I hope this project can inspire other designers.“Design can save the world! ”. The United Nations Climate Change Conferences are yearly conferences, with more than 23 Conferences were held by 23 countries. Its aim is to serve as the formal meeting of the United Nations Climate Change Conferences Parties to assess progress in dealing with climate change. But when I reviewed these years’ branding design of the conference, those designs are too common and boring. Hence, I decided to rebrand the conference’s identity design. The objective of this project is to create an attractive branding that can reflect the connection between the different weather and the global climate change. The first step is to build the identity’s visual system. The visual system is made by 25 dots which relates to the 25th COP Conference. My aim is to create a smart system that can be applied on different medias. I abstracted the media’s characteristics and fitted them to the system. From printings to screens, each individual design can reflect the media’s character. In order to create a scalable and flexible identity, I explored composition on the weather icons. All the icons are developed in the system. The identity communicate the conference’s goals and the concept of weathers mix. Since the weather conditions are never independent. In addition, different weather conditions are mutual conversion among each other. Through designing a simple visual system, I can make these icons reasonably showed at the same time. The main logo is composed by the four basic elements of nature. They are air, water, earth, and fire. Except for the square made by 25 dots, the four elements are the foundation for the system. All the weather icons are developed from the four basic elements. In the process, I also developed a typeface family that can be combined accurately with the whole visual system. For secondary logo, I chose Futura Medium. The new identity design is more friendly and interesting for young generations. It is good for the conference’s promotion and influence . A right design strategy can help the conference attract more followers. Design can save the world! Thank you for watching！
Thirsting for a Future (UNICEF WASH report)
Climate change is one of many forces contributing to an unfolding water crisis. In the coming years, the demand for water will increase as food production grows, populations grow and move, industries develop and consumption increases. This can lead to water stress, as increasing demand and use of water strain available supplies. One of the most effective ways to protect children in the face of climate change is to safeguard their access to safe water and sanitation. This report shares a series of solutions, policy responses and case studies from UNICEF’s work around the world.
Until The Break of Dawn_Album Packaging Design
Client: Art direction, illustration and editorial design for Chinese rock band Chinos's new album. Chinos is a British pop rock band in Modern Sky Entertainment. Author’s vision: Designers play vital roles in music industry. Majority of people follow the visual games set by designers. Graphic designers not only design the album covers, not only make the music videos, we also design audiences’ visual memory of the music. Concept: Songs and illustrations, dreams and memories. Chinos’ new album is modern fairy tales. This project aims to demonstrate and visualize Chinos’ songs. The theme of this album is “dreams and fairy tale”. Some research on dreams suggests that the vast majority of people actually used to dream in black and white, which means there are no popping colors to draw focus. In order to to demonstrate and visualize Chinos’ songs. I decided to combine black and white illustrations with flexiable layout to express its spirits. The partnership of black and white in the illustrations is an ideal match of opposites. The purity of white, coupled with the mystery of black, shows a balance on the eyes which can produce a powerful emotional response, so elements such as type, illustrations and graphics take on an added importance. I wish to remind the audiences of their own dreams, hoping to make them stop for a minute, and start to create their fairy tales. And despite the added value of appearing to customers in a classy context, black and white print is actually cheaper to execute, as the costs for printing are reduced due to there only being two colors. Thank you for reading:)

Infographic For Global Climate Change
Global climate change is currently a serious problem in our society. It influences the Earth's future. It causes many effects on our environment, such as glaciers shrinking, ice on rivers and lakes are melting earlier, plants and animals’ ranges shifting, and many species of animal are disappearing. According to NASA’s reports, the extreme events around the world have been increased over years. This poster shows the details and evidences of global climate change. How to educate people by design work? Can design work influence people’s attitude on global warming and stable climate? I hope this poster can teach people the truth of global climate change. I want to proved to people how bad the global climate change actually is, and appealed for a fight against the condition. Design and art can be efficient strategies for helping control the global climate change. The effort we put on this topic is absolute worthy and significant. It will gradually attracted more attention and influence people’s mind on global climate change. We can save the world with our work, and should never give up our powerful weapons.
Chinese Painting Weather App
UI/app. The app will analyze the current season and climate to decided which subjects of Chinese painting would be used as the background-image. On the other hand，users can choose which subjects of work they like too. The color of the sky has a interesting interaction with the painting and with the subject of painting. I hope that this app can let more people worry about the nowaday environmental pollution. In addition, may be it can attract some Chinese young people to know more about the Traditional Chinese Art. Since there are too many young people who know nothing about their own country's culture. Image-1: This app use the Chinese landscape painting to show the climates and temperatures, which is the fundamental understanding of Chinese landscape painting, therefor it can intuitive show the time since the color of the sky has the function of the time reference. This circle has the function of the dial, rotate the sun button or the moon button can directly selected point in time thus change the color of the sky and show the temperature data. Image-2: The app will analyze the current season and climate to decided which subjects of Chinese painting would be used as the background-image. On the other hand，users can choose which subjects of work they like too. The color of the sky has a interesting interaction with the painting and with the subject of painting.

Users can instantly find the temperature data of a certain time. Full Chinese text version use the Chinese poetry to express the state of climates since the Chinese poetries always have some beautiful sentences that describe the weathers or the climates.
We’ve been rebranding West-MEC, a “sleeping giant” of sorts in western Phoenix. Generally speaking, West-MEC offers revolutionary curriculum for high school students looking to bolster their academics with hands-on training and industry certifications. West-MEC approached us with a desire to liven up its portrayal with messaging, imagery and an overall persona that would entice high school demographics. The result? “Discover What’s Within”. We developed a killer new tagline that not only challenged key audiences to pursue their truest potential, but also invites communities to explore campuses and facilities across the city. Naturally, we had to create imagery with a similar appeal. Check out some of the new collateral below. A tasteful blend of photography, authentic subjects, layers and messaging, these projects are a great testament to our in house abilities and we’re excited to watch them sweep the valley.

CDA(context design alliance)
During one-week learning on the The Context(It is a branch of applied linguistics), I design a little frame which I noted some logical relationship between designer and reader. With these preparations out of the way, I were ready to design the visual image design of the Context Design Alliance. It is a frame that I can experiment with ideas that may not work out.Since the themes of object constantly varies throughout the daily task. The visual image design of CDA should be designed to adapt the latest theme we are dealing with. From content to form, it has many methods to convey informations such as overlay part of the logo, hightlight part of the logo, mirror the logo or recombine the order of the text.

Diversified Communication Art
The objective of my work is to remind people to communicate with their families and friends, because we live in the era with internet and smart phones, and these remote technology are pushing us away from our true life. Sometimes when I look at masterpieces from last century, and then compare those most authentic thoughts with our current life, I have realized that our daily communications are mostly based on what we have heard from internet. Think about our life before internet, were we happier? Were we spending more time joyfully with our families?
