My name is Huiqi (Fay) Qiu. I am an experienced graphic designer and currently pursuing an MFA Design degree at School of Visual Arts in New York City. Growing up in an island city, Xiamen, Fujian, I was immersed in Chinese cultural heritages. At the age of 15, I moved to Vancouver, Canada. After that, I attended Boston University in the United States to earn my BFA in graphic design. In my undergraduate thesis show, I amplified audience’s experience with printed material by allowing them to participate in the process of print-making. What’s more, I encouraged audience to pose questions to themselves, “Is this only meaningless labor?”, or “Is this an irreplaceable experience that you can never possibly get by hitting the print button on a printing machine?” What I have gained from living in different places and interacting with diverse individuals intensifies my passion to be a great designer. I always look forward to collaborating with different talents and professionals.
