Nany Chen is a designer and illustrator currently residing in the New York area. She earned a BFA in Communication Design from Nanjing Normal University and studied for one and a half years at HFG Offenbach in Germany. While studying at HFG, she participated in an interdisciplinary exhibition project called “Making Crisis Visible,” which sparked her interest in social design. As a designer with a strong interest in mental health, Nany is eager to collaborate with faculty and peers to learn how to use design as a method for raising awareness of mental health in society. She hopes to make a greater effort in social innovation design through these collaborations.
