Hello! My name is Tiffany Wan.
I’m an independent designer and event consultant. I provide brand, design, and event planning services through Wanderlab Designs.
Design & Events? Huh?
Yes! It’s the full package (and may be a little controlling, occasionally opinionated). It has to do with my super-organized personality. My holistic approach focuses on the user experience where design follows content. The experience a guest has at an event is most certainly impacted by branding, which is ultimately influenced by design. I believe that design makes a meaningful impact to experience & event planning, no matter how small or major the detail.
The Background Stuff:
The value of design is beyond beautiful aesthetics; design should be easy to understand, accessible to the end-user, simple, and impactful.
I am experienced with a range of design industries: branding, print & digital graphic design, and photography (ThingsAsian Press, Sporting Republic, Dorgan Architecture & Planning), environmental products (One Earth Designs), seasonal decor, home storage, and furniture (ThreeSixty Sourcing & Cohesion Products), as well as apparel (PlayerLayer).
I began my career as medical device designer (AliMed, Inc.) engulfed in ethnographic research. And was awarded a US design patent (#D606832) for a surgical table clamp. As a young designer, I was a guest speaker at Roger Williams University (2009) and guest design lecturer at Beijing Business and Technology University (2010) and Beijing Information Science Technology University (2011).
A graduate of Syracuse University, I hold a Bachelor of Industrial and Interaction Design (BID). Lastly, I grew up in Boston, have lived in Shanghai, studied in London and Beijing, and am currently based in Hong Kong.
Outside of work, I play ice-hockey, enjoy people watching, taking photographs, eating delicious foods, and am constantly curious. Travel and wandering through cities is a big part of my source for inspiration. Plus, Tiffany “Wan”der. And “lab” for constant experimentation!
