QIN JUAN

My name is QIN JUAN, born and raised in China, I have had 2.5 years of work experience at international creative agencies, specialized in visual identity, branding, media design, printing, and exhibition design. I am interested in using visual language to explore the perception and behavior of individuals, and its usage in modern society. I am particularly interested in the depiction of space, body, subtle emotions and the behavior of individuals in connection with questions of cultural identity, lifestyles, and social media usage.
