Bio: I'm Zhenqi, Z for short, a designer from Singapore currently based in Chicago, IL. After getting my Bachelor's in Industrial Design, I worked in the retail display and visual merchandising industry for a few years. In 2011, I decided to change directions and moved to Chicago to pursue my Master in Fine Arts in Visual Communication Design at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I am currently working for Studio 424, a boutique design and branding studio that cares about progressive causes and has done work for various non-profits including the Clean Energy Trust, American Architectural Foundation, and The Exoneration Project, to name a few.
Always curious, I love learning about new things and believe in thinking by making. I have a strong passion for dynamic branding and typography, and continually seek to better myself in these areas. I believe that empathy is one of the most important traits a designer should have.
