Hi, I’m Mengya HAO,
but most people call me Mia. I am a brand/product designer and art lover based on Earth 🌏
With a Master’s degree in Graphic Branding and years of industry experience, I mainly focus on digital, print, and brand-related work. With a curious mind, my goal is to elevate experiences through simple, functional, and elegant design.
Photography is the way I get along with this world. My works have been featured in various international and domestic publications, such as New Weekly, Lens Academy, Sony, Marie Claire, etc. Numerous places have exhibited my work, including Jimei × Arles International Photo Festival in Three Shadows Xiamen Photography Art Centre, Shenzhen Sea World Culture and Arts Center, Chengdu Contemporary Image Museum, and more.
2013 Graduated from University of the Arts London of Graphic Branding and Identity
2012 Graduated from Jiangnan University of Visual Communication Design
Green Link Digital Bank - Greenland Singapore × Linklogis
Gathered and analyzed Linklogis’ international products, developed solutions according to existing problems, cooperated with the engineering team, and created the Link UI-international design system within six months. Based on this design system, I led the international product design team, worked with multiple departments on the mainland, Hong Kong, and Singapore, and launched the internal management system of GL Bank with high quality and efficiency.
Olea Fintech Platforms - Standard Chartered × Linklogis
I worked with cross-border teams to complete a 0 to 1 design project within four months. From conceptual exploration to a successful launch, I directed the visual and interactive design of the Olea Supply Chain Fintech Platforms (Investor Portal, Supplier Portal and part of Internal Portal). I was problem-solving from the design point of view and getting positive feedback from users and the company.
