I’m Mengya Hao, but most people call me Mia. I am a brand/product designer and art lover based in Shenzhen, China.
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 editorial and fine art photography are frequently featured in various international and domestic publications, such as New Weekly, Lens Academy, Sony, and Marie Claire. 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.
