Adrian Wu is a Vancouver based industrial designer who graduated from Emily Carr University and majored in industrial design. After his graduation (2012) he started his freelance practice, in which he has been involved in various projects such as the souvenir design competition for the National Centre of Performing Arts Beijing, and outdoor furniture design (Ingage Chair) for the Seattle Design week. As an industrial designer, he is interested in poetic designs that enrich people’s life experience in an elegant and riveting way. In addition, he is passionate about observing people’s daily needs and problems, whether psychologically or physically. Through the process of design thinking, sketching and hands on prototype making, he explores and cultivates creative solutions which balance between form and function. He believes design not only generates sales for the consumer world, but it serves a greater purpose of improving the experience and quality of life, as well as offering a fresh perspective that may change the world in little steps.
