Ingrid Yiu

Hong Kong, China / New York, NY

19 year old aspiring advertising/communication designer. Parsons Class of 2019


Born in Miami, FL, but raised in Hong Kong, China, I have been drawing as long as I can remember. I had my beginnings in art spring from enthusiasm for Japanese animation and manga, from which I eventually diversified.

My interest and passion for graphic design only flourished three years ago: the summer of my tenth grade year, during an internship I took with a corporate designer. Since then, I have been a prolific and active artist in the HKIS school community. I was heavily involved with the HKIS Interact Club’s Annual Charity Fashion Show and the HKIS Design Club throughout my high school career.

I currently attend Parsons The New School for Design in New York and am a first year design student there.
