Xinran Peng is a graphic & type designer who currently lives in the bagel headquarter (NYC). Her works cover a broad spectrum, from (kinda) serious branding and UI/UX to (really) weird animations and type design. She loves musics from the 80s way too much and literally can’t live without spicy food. Contact her if you wanna talk about work or where is the best pho in town.
Here's a selection of works made by the "Business Side" of me, but I can assure you they might be weird and experimental but never dull. These works include long-term projects, like typeface design, brand identities, UI/UX design, and editorials. Let's get some magic going on!
The Joyce Theater
This is a re-branding project for The Joyce Theater, one of the only theaters built by dancers for dance. With the redesign, the approach was to build a new design framework that captures the essence of dance and brings the theater a fresher and modern look.
