Hana Chiang is a creative designer and illustrator originally from Taiwan, now based in Vancouver, Canada. Hana was trained in graphic design and fine art at Fu Jen Catholic University in Taiwan, then completed a Fashion Design diploma at Blanche Macdonald Centre in Vancouver.
Hana’s illustration has clean lines with subtle attitude; sometimes sophisticated, sometimes quirky. She is inspired by Japanese Superflat Art, the dreamy moment in Michael Gondry’s films, fashion editorials, and the Marion Cotillard’s Edith Piaf in movie “La Vie en Rose”.
Hana mainly uses pencil, gouache, watercolour, and watercolour pencil for her creation. She is also proficient in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
Hana believes that the best working process brings out the best result. She carefully considers each step from research, to sketches, to the final design.
She asks herself lots of questions, like "Is there a different or better way to do this?", "Who is this for?", and "What is the purpose?".
Hana also has great curiosity and a desire to continue learning new skills, new process, and to work with new people.
She would like everyone to see her passion through her work.
