Suyao Tian / 2017 Thesis Candidate

Suyao Tian is a graphic designer interested in experimenting and exploring the total creative branding process from the idea, to the artwork, to the business and product application, to the final product, and the cyclical return of the effects of the process upon the original idea itself. Tian’s work uses this organic process to create and reform my design until it arrives at its natural and eventual form.

Tian focuses on determining the most powerful commercial application of design, and exploring the relationship in greater detail. Through her work and research, Tian strive to incorporate the emotional, visual, and interactive effects of a product’s design on its audience. She wants to not only have a greater understanding of how design and branding come into existence, but also the process by which a design can gain global prominence, weaving into the very fabric of society.


Be sure to join us on Friday, May 12th from 6-9pm at the MFA Graduate Studios to enjoy Suyao‘s thesis work, along with the other 2017 graduates!
