Hey there! I’m a designer building cool things on and off the web.


I’m currently exploring alternative and speculative ways of interacting with typography on the web through experimental sketches. My recent interests are internet history, memes, and independently-made typography.

I was born in Chicago and grew up mostly in Shanghai, China. I have also lived in New York, LA, Baltimore, Cleveland, and Boston during different times of my life.

I’m looking for full-time opportunities starting the summer of 2020! Reach out at ayeh01@mica.edu
