Hi there :)

My name is Shaoyang Chen, meaning morning sunshine in Chinese.

I was raised in a seaside city in China and currently live in New York, as I have been lured by all the romanticism associated with this city.  Yet nobody warned me about the stinky New York subway and giant mice before I moved here after graduating from college.

Despite all the complaints, I am still madly in love with the city as the way it is : )

As a graphic designer who comes from a journalism background, I always believe design builds a bridge for communication.

Please feel free to write an email and say hi. I am always down for fun projects, graphic design memes, and song recommendations.
