HELLO. As we move from the Informational Age to the Conceptual Age, the mind that contributes creativity and ideas is more valuable. The purpose of this portfolio is to showcase the ideas behind each project and the format that I created to supoort them. You will experience a wide range of works from branding to packaging, book design, illustration, advertising, web design and fine art pieces. Enjoy.
I AM AN ENTREPRENEUR, THIS IS MY BRAND. Prince Peter is a New York based contemporary clothing line created by myself and my business partner Prince Peter.

THEATRICAL POSTCARDS THAT COLLAPSE AND EXPAND.
BACK TO TRADITION The museum invite that urges people stop looking at the art works online, but go to the museum and see the actual work.
AS SCROLLING OUT, THE IMAGES APPEAR FROM PIXELATED TO THE ACTUAL ENGRAVING PRINT.
THERE FORE I AM RE-PRESENTATION OF POPULAR MUSICIANS IN REDUCTIONISM. We love our idols, and we heard headlines about the them all the time. We felt like we know everything about them. But do we really even truly know who they are? Who is the artist? What is our image of them? What makes us remember them? Do the words they say made up as who they are in our minds? Or is their existence only based on our fascination of them?
MISSION STATEMENT The disjointed images and phrases make the viewer question who the popular musicians are. The shapes that contain the quotes have their different conceptual meanings: The triangle is mimicking a warning sign; the circle is mimicking the rounded shape on the musician’s head; the square is to mimicking the musician’s angular feature. By looking at the quotes they said alone with the images, one might recognized the artists. By showing just enough information to trigger the viewer’s own memory or idea of the musicians, the viewer will have “their idea” or their memory of who the artists are. The “idea” of who the musicians are will be different from every individual – because we all have our own relationship and understanding of the musicians. And, because the viewers will have their own “idea“ of who they are – which was possibly perceived by the persona the musicans created on stage and/or portrayed by media, and in the end, the information was always filtered by our own perception objectively. Therefore, The musicians’ own identity does not exist in my work, but identified and re-presented in every individual viewer’s mind.

Five self-curated, self-produced art pieces interpreting slow motion as a device used to reval the unnoticed.
John Fulbrook 71 5th Avenue, 4th Floor New York, NY 10003
A unique gallery experience created by 3 graphic designers: Kirstin Huber, Louis Liu and Kevin Wang. All self-curated, self-produced art pieces interpreting slow motion as a device used to reveal the unnoticed.
OPENING EVENT July 6, 2010 | 6-8 PM Visual Arts Gallery 601 West 26th St. NY, NY
MISSION STATEMENT THE CONTENT OF THE SHOW INTERPRETS SLOW MOTION AS A DEVICE USED TO REVEAL THE UNNOTICED.
The Slow Motion Show is a thesis collaboration between three design students: Kirstin Huber, Louis Liu and Kevin Wang. The show contains a series of self-curated, self-produced art pieces. It is a synthesis of different points of view and forms of design thinking. Each piece displays the entire life of an object or its process in which the lens of slow motion alters our perception of the object’s generally assumed meaning. In today’s fast-paced world, information is excessive and we’ve gotten used to having instant access to it. Especially in big cities like New York, people are so busy and overwhelmed with the day-to-day that they may overlook the beauty in certain rituals and routines. The young artists at SVA (and college students, in general) often tend to lose touch in this way. While we are students too, in observing the various cultures and disciplines surrounding us we are able to see beyond the scope of traditional graphic design. The purpose of this show is to present a broader viewpoint of simple moments, in order to better understand their importance.
