With a talent for problem solving, Yang has quickly become a vital member of our team as our Junior Designer. She is passionate about design and creating environments that help make people’s lives easier. She excels in collaborating with our Interior Designer to prepare office layouts, furniture renderings and presentations. She is is also proficient in AutoCAD, Adobe Suite, 3Ds Max, Sketchup, Revit, and our company-wide design and specification software.
Yang believes that design serves as an excellent communication tool that helps bring people closer together. She was first inspired to be a designer, moving with her family to Beijing from the historic city of Shanxi. Taking part in the transformation of her family’s new home, inspired her to pursue the challenges of design as a profession. She is currently working towards her master’s degree at Pratt Institute. She previously attended Oklahoma State University and South West Jiaotong University, where she attained a BA in Environmental Design and Interior Design.
Outside of work and when Yang is not working towards her degree, she enjoys collaborating with her peers on various design projects and competitions. She loves drawing portraits of her friends and visiting sculpture exhibits at the Met. She also enjoys animated films and discovering new restaurants.
