Issue 1, 6 x 8 inches, Co-founded with Justin Chen, 2013


This biannual publication intents on documenting the ‘et cetera’ within a design challenge: references, initial ideas, working methods—the raw materials. By highlighting process rather than polished outcome, etc. zine focuses on stimulating exchange and discovery.

etc. encourages the spirit of do-it-yourself—where the reader encounters the zine as a package of loose sheets. By building your own order or content, the zine emphasizes the potential for cross-reference and generating new connection.

etc. zine was awarded Best Publication Proposal at the Student Editorial Award 2012, organized by The Big Issue Taiwan.

This psychological study of color started with my curiosity regarding how people (especially graphic designers who are supposed to be sensitive to color) might translate color into language and how their written descriptions might then be translated again into color.

For this project I chose three colors from the Sherwin-Williams collection, Synergy, Imagine and Reflection. Each of these names are incredibly ambiguous and open to interpretation in there own way, so I created a different set of instructions for each color and documented the result.

A series of booklets: Final outcome from a class—Visual Culture of Food, Dimension variable,
Under the guidance of Christina Connett, Dec 2011


‘Creative Picnic’ deals with the subject matter of food and art, exploring the development of food-related art historically, artistically, and culturally. Each booklet, dealing with different subjects, from Dutch still life to contemporary food related art, can be placed together for readers to compare and explore.

FOOD (black and white stapled booklet) is a reproduction of Gordon Matta-Clark's exhibition by white columns, New York in 2000.

Do not is an online platform which asks participants to share personal/cultural superstition. The language on the street signage ‘do not’ led to reveal a contrary concept of its imperative language.

As opposed to ‘do not’ which is commonly used to prohibit human behaviors, ‘jinx’ is an interpretive subjective system of superstition. Using instruction as a tool to excavate ritualistic behaviours of everyday life, Do not is a manual made out of things that are not generally interpreted as imperative or instructive, such as: subjective rituals, thoughts, dreams, ideas.
