Hi, my name is Ming Li Chang and you can call me Ming. Growing up in a culturally diverse community, I have always wondered what a young Chinese designer could do to redefine what “made in china” symbolizes. I have a deep respect for my culture’s rich heritage and craftsmanship and I see product design as a way to change the narrative. As a designer, I am a divergent thinker who approaches the decision making process through trial and error, finding value in every idea. Whether I’m designing lifestyle, home goods, lighting or furniture, I create objects that are oddly purposeful. Decisions are based on taking insights to ideate concepts that have a clean, approachable aesthetic without being overcomplicated. By illustrating convincing narratives, I want to bring ideas to life in a way that others might say “I could’ve done that”. I am Ming, whose purpose is to take diversity of thinking to craft objects that people love.
