Through my work, I desire to evoke feelings and experiences, to leave a lasting imprint on the senses and emotions of those who encounter it. When I touch and smell a new book or observe the unexpected juxtaposition of materials in fashion, my senses come alive. It deepens my connection to scent, texture, and color, infusing vitality into design and inviting viewers to engage both visually and tactilely. This approach serves as a bridge that seamlessly connects the tangible with the digital realm.



Hi! I’m Jocelyn Zhao, a graphic designer based in New York, with an emphasis on branding, transmedia storytelling, computer generative design, and spatial experience design.
