Zuyi's main interest is the exploration of expressive typography and typographic re-interpretation applied to existing text from the perspective of the designer.
Zuyi Kang graduated from Capital Normal University in China as a graphic design major and in September 2012 was accepted to Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts London as a Visual Communication major. In 2013, after getting her Master's degree, she returned to China and was appointed Graphics Lecturer in the Inner Mongolia Normal University.
Zuyi Kang is passionate about graphic design, font design, and research on typographic design application in novel writing. In her studies at UAL, Zuyi discovered the hybrid novel and fell in love with it. In 2016, she returned to the UK to pursue a PhD at Cambridge School of Art under the supervision of Professor Will Hill and investigated how different typographic design elements can be applied in the hybrid novel.
