Hi, I'm Bynn Shen, a Chinese-American graphic designer and illustrator currently based in Baltimore! Here, I'm working towards my MFA in Graphic Design at MICA.

I've always been fascinated with our space perception in both digital and physical settings and playing with the question of "what's real and what's not?". Within my design work, I'm particularly interested in the intricacies and beauty created through typography and image-making to create a space of daydreams and serenity.
