Date of Birth:
Hello! I 'm Wenqi
I am Wenqi Zheng, from China. My background is Visual Communication Design. I am studying Design for social innovation at the School of Visual Arts. I’ve always wanted to work in the transformation of the human experience because I have a passion for contributing to making people’s lives better, and I think the focus on transformation is important because it looks at humanity in its totality and as a complete experience. That’s why I focused on Design in my study and got to understand Visual Design and Social innovation.
