WHO AM I?


 

EGO

Remember my name. I am Ava Yang. I am an Industrial Designer graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI. I am extremely passionate about design and always try to deliver outstanding results. I have spent the last several years immersing myself in the vast and varied world of design. Having a Chinese identity to constitute my exterior and an American identity dominates my interior self, I was always intrigued by my mixed cultural identity, which also urges me to travel around the world and to experience different cultures. I constantly seek inspirations in film, theatre, music, and fashion culture of every land I step on. This website is a window to my artistic world. Whether you are a friend, a client or family, you're welcome to have a look at my work. If you have a target and the budget, I can reach them. I will end them as beautifully and discreetly as possible!
