Hi! I am Hsin-Yi,
you can call me Cynn 

 

I am from Taiwan, stayed in Tokyo and Edinburgh, now based in London.

I am a multifaceted designer and artist with a fine art and architecture design background, working across multimedia, from 3D visualisation, motion graphics to UIUX. Having worked in diverse artistic and design environments, I am proficient in visualizing insightful ideas into a dynamic visual story.

My multiple identities make my practice bridge the junction between design thinking, digital technology and creativity. As a designer, I value tackling challenging problems, trying new approaches and bringing innovation in an organized process; while as an artist, I am passionate about creating my unique aesthetic across distinctive media based on critical research.

 

In my free time, I also do sketches, illustrations and photographs.

Feel free to contact me via
