Hi There!

My name is Yaquan Wei, a graphic designer based in Shenzhen, with a strong interest in branding, packaging, typography and UI/UX. I graduated from the Academy of Art University with a master’s degree in San Francisco.

I’m curious about design and the world around me, which makes me keen to explore things beyond their surfaces, to explore subtle details as well as the overall situation. I take delight to try new things and get design inspiration from unexpected sources. I hope that you can see the world through my perspective reflected in my works.

Before We Become "us"

At May 20 this year, Okamoto worked with Zhang Jiacheng, a photographer on a series of works, exploring emotions, displaying the relationships, and unraveling non-standard intimate contexts. There's always a clue before we become "us". And it's often these elusive things that are life-inspiring.

Before a relationship between a man and woman is established, it often needs to go into an uncertain stage, which may involve temptation, emotional entanglement, fantasy, adaptation, and a show of suspicion. After rounds of adaptation between the man and woman, we end up becoming the unique "us".
