As a founding partner, Ding Fan carefully protects and shapes the spirit of UDL, and always strives to guide the growth of UDL and its group of talented designers. He works with clients to help them clarify their visions and goals. At the same time, he works with the team to develop clear strategies and concepts for projects, together delivering outstanding design works. Fan studied art at an early age, and at the age of 14, he was introduced to graphic design by chance — that was when his dream of becoming an artist changed to becoming a graphic designer. He was admitted to CAFA and studied graphic design under Wang Min, and joined Wang Xu Design after graduation. In 2012, he co-founded UDL with his partners and became the world’s youngest AGI member in 2018. It is not difficult to see Fan’s dedicated and serious attitude towards design. But at the same time, he is imaginative and has always been curious about all things. His mind constantly expands outside of work — reading, writing, film, contemporary art, and food — multi-perspective study enriches and refines his understanding of design and the world.
