Born in Beijing, Shuyao graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design Graphic Design Department in 2017. She joined SDL shortly after graduation as a designer. She is interested in working with branding, type study, symbolic graphic making, experimental publishing, and printing. She explores the visual norms of consumer products in the Chinese market, and actively participates in various kinds of projects.
Shuyao owns 2 cats, which is probably the reason why she works creatively yet indolently (proven by the numbers of awards her works acquired). Outside of work she likes spending time on Switch and PC games, watching Formula 1, and doing nail polish.
