Design Legends ("DL") had the distinct honour to interview legendary designer Yilan Liu ("YL") for their original perspective and innovative approach to design as well as their creative lifestyle, we are very pleased to share our interview with our distinguished readers.
YL : I graduated from College of Design and Innovation of Tongji University with a bachelor degree. After that I studied MA Design for two years at Central Saint Martins, and graduated as " Distinction Graduate".
YL : I chose to become a designer mainly because I'm into the field of art and design. Design is not only a job for me, but an enjoyable process to find the connection with the world.
YL : I'm a jewelry designer, I design jewelry pieces for the most of my time. But I also do graphic design for other companies and have some experience designing other products as well.
YL : Actually, I think I still have a long way to go to reach the best. But I can give some advise based on my own experience. I think to become a professional designer should keep curious to the world all the time. Every success needs endeavor and laziness will keep a talent away from success.
YL : A good designer designs things that people like, while a great designer's work can influence people's mind.
YL : A good design will be proved during the test of time, just like good books or good paintings. In my opinion, I usually pay attention to what the design brings to the audience, such as emotional satisfaction or function innovation.
YL : I'm dreaming of combining jewelry design with VR technology which can change the traditional mode of showing or selling jewelry.
