Hi, my name is Nianqi Zhang!
Coming from a background of advertising and interactive telecommunications, I usually started my works with research on society, space and the possible usages of media. With web design, physical installation and games, I hope my design can discover unique information, care about human-beings and truly be meaningful to our lives.

During the explorations, I also found 3D interactive design as my favorite creative media. Right now I am focusing on 3D experience design.
