About

Kenny Zhang
Multidisciplinary designer based in NYC/LA
Currently at 2x4







I am Kenny Zhang, a multidisciplinary designer based in NYC and LA.

I define myself as a fun and witty introvert; I value deep emotional connections with others. Being a graphic designer, my personality helps me shift the sensibilities of my work between calm and dynamic. I embrace different realms of design through multiple media forms spanning from print to digital. Visual storytelling is how I express myself to the world, and I believe that designers should always strive to touch the heart of the viewer.








Open to freelance/commission
