a multidisciplinary designer currently based in Beijing, Shenzhen, Berlin, Edinburgh, Shanghai, Copenhagen

Yuxi Liu is deeply interested in the intersection of design, people, and technology. With a bachelor degree in Industrial Design, her professional history thus far involves multiple design fields.

Motivated by the great changes brought by emerging technologies, Yuxi moved to the United Kingdom to pursue a postgraduate degree in Design Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, looking ahead into the future and promoting innovation with her own efforts.

Yuxi’s practice during master’s studies explores diverse affordances of emerging technologies and probes into technological, social, cultural, and ethical issues with a focus on the interpretation of technology and humanity. Her work spans from innovative products and services to interactive installations, digital fabrication, and design fiction.
