Yan Tsai Cheung

Yan has decided to broaden her skillset, investing in other visual interests beyond her typical experience of branding, editorial design, and photography. Nevertheless, her newest project retains the same ethos as her previous work: "design with precision; illustrate with whimsy".

Yan's research of the static, sequential arts (comics and manga) highlights the medium's potential and value to the broader fields of art and design. Throughout the year, she has investigated comics' practical elements as well as their context, fortifying a strength in illustration, which resulted in the creation of a unique and original character, Arlen, and a storyline to bring him to life in a comic.

Major project

Arlen: A Story About the Wonders of Comics, Enlightenment, and Adventure.


In 2017, Yan was awarded The Award for Excellence during her Art Foundation at Loughborough University before continuing to earn the Highly Commended for Best In-House Printed Product award from the 2019 Association of Creative and Print Managers in Education (ACPME) awards for Big Book Project work in the Graphic Communication & Illustration Course (at Loughborough University).
