Xinyi Zhao

Design Apprentice

As a Design Apprentice, Xinyi is excited to create great design solutions through digital platforms. She is happy to be on a team that puts collaborative teamwork into practice and is excited to learn alongside design professionals.

Xinyi graduated from Parsons School of Design with a bachelor's degree in communication design. During her time at school, Xinyi gained experience in typeface and editorial design, and learned to write code for the front-end of websites. She received a Type Director Club Scholarship in 2021 and later worked on a self-driven typeface project with a mentor. Her internships at a marketing agency and an architecture design company also helped Xinyi improve her branding skills and allowed her to collaborate closely with the marketing team. She looks forward to continuing to grow and challenge herself on these fronts.

In her spare time, Xinyi loves to practice outdoor activities that make her feel the energy from her body. Sometimes she enjoys taking small trips to different cities and trying local cuisines. When she has a whole day free, she likes to immerse herself in a novel or TV show and enjoy the world from that perspective.
