About Work


+1 626 272 1163

I’m always on the move. When I traveled from the East to West, from Taiwan to the United States, I flourished in the constant circulation of cultures, tastes, languages, and learned from the different people I meet along the way.

Being on the move sparks my imagination. Diffusion, friction, and transformation activate my creative process. Through this ever-evolving world, I am able to navigate quickly between ways of thinking, whether that is communicated through print, digital, or spatial environments.

My name is Brian Liu.
I’m a multi-disciplinary graphic designer based in Los Angeles, California.
