Hello, I'm Mengya Hao, though many know me as Mia. I am a brand and digital product designer with a passion for art. I hold a Master's degree in Graphic Branding and bring years of industry experience to my work.
With a natural curiosity and a creative spirit, my goal is to elevate user experiences through clean, functional, and aesthetically pleasing design. Whether it's digital, print, or brand-related projects, I strive to create design solutions that are both effective and visually captivating.
Aside from design, photography is another outlet for me to explore and connect with the world. I am proud to have my work recognized by international and domestic publications, such as New Weekly, Lens Academy, Sony, Marie Claire, and more. My photography has also been exhibited in numerous prestigious venues, including Jimei × Arles International Photo Festival, Three Shadows Xiamen Photography Art Centre, Shenzhen Sea World Culture and Arts Center, Chengdu Contemporary Image Museum, and others.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me, looking forward to connecting with you.
