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.

NING's Experimental Films

This is a work booklet I designed for documentary director, Jiawei Ning. In the design, it takes Jiawei Ning’s experimental video works as the creative source to find the answers to society and life. Of which, the film “Awaken” takes the fishermen in the director’s hometown as the theme, and strives to explore the subtle relationship between man and nature. The sea surface is blocked by frozen ice, and the film discusses the issue of the survival status of fishermen through a fishing boat waiting for the ice sea to melt and go fishing on the sea. The full film has no any dialogue, and the viewing is relatively single and cold. The objective and subjective shots are interlaced, and the ethereal working sound on site directly stimulates the viewer’s seeing and hearing. In typesetting, I regarded the text information related to the film as image processing, and placed it around. Under the text, a marine fish was placed in the red fishing basin. The text is arranged on the fishing basin like a fishing net. I convey a sense of “Freeze” with such composition, which echoes the current situation of fishermen who are restricted from fishing due to the freeze on the sea surface in the plot.
