Hello! My name is Yi-Hsien Hung. I am a motion/graphic designer, illustrator.

I (b.1990) am a motion/graphic designer, illustrator from Taiwan. My expertise lies in art direction, motion design, illustration, information design.

I have previously worked as a typeface (font) designer in DynaComware (Taiwan), creating a set of Japanese Kanji typeface which consists of 12,000 characters. The set is currently available in Japan.

I am a post-graduate in Master of Arts (Graphic Design) from AKV St. Joost, The Netherlands. In June 2017, I graduated from my masters studies with the topic: Possibilities of Mapping a Forest — Invisible Connections Between Urban Societies and Forests. My research focused on visual storytelling and information design; the graduation project, What’s Happening in the Mastbos, is an illustrated event map, showing the actual events that have happened in the forest. The project was exhibited during the Naar Buiten Fair, organised by Staatsbosbeheer (Dutch Forestry Commission).

In the year 2017 and 2018, I worked as a freelance graphic designer, illustrator in the Netherlands, working in collaboration with Dutch Forestry Commission (Staatsbosbeheer), BredaPhoto Festival as well as local artists.

Currently, I am busy exploring, adding the third dimension to my works.
