About


Tinghao Hu 胡廷浩T
I am currently a freelance communication designer specialized in visual identity development, communication strategy, campaign design, and cultural research and creation. Other than that, I just stay driven by a thirst for learning, processing, creating, and sharing. 
I was born in Taipei, but have since been nourished and inspired by multiple cities and cultures I have lived in. Having moved over 24 times in the first 24 years of my life, I can't seem to define myself by any of those places anymore, but rather by my words, works, and ambitions.
