︎︎︎Hello, I'm Chad Xuyuan Hu (he/him), a multidisciplinary DESIGNER and ILLUSTRATOR presently situated in PHILLY.
My passion lies in exploring the spaces between the past and present, creating works that activate memories and evoke nostalgia. With a love for storytelling and a keen eye for design, I use my skills to visually communicate narratives and bring them to life in a captivating way.
I graduated from Tyler School of Art and Architecture with an MFA degree in Graphic and Interactive Design. My work ranges from illustration and brand identity to motion graphics and interactive design. I am dedicated to creating unique and engaging visuals that connect with audiences more deeply.
When I'm not designing and illustrating, you might find me taking a nap with my corgi Sushi, investigating a new hot pot location, or off on an adventure to discover a new city.
