Projects, About

I’m Edmund Zhang, and I explore future visions—through design, research and storytelling.👋️

Edmund’s official title is "Experience Designer," but he doesn’t design any apps. He’s more of an Everything Designer, transforming everyday objects, waste materials, and even heritage crafts into innovative solutions. 

His approach is future-focused and optimistic—using design to foster positive change. He uncovers hidden possibilities in unexpected places, always aiming for renewal and transformation. Edmund was the recipient of the 2018 Wallpaper* Next Generation Designer Award.
