Pirate of the good
Thesis Projects from Product to Service
This is a thesis about pirates and piracy. Designers hate piracy. We were told pirates are the natural enemy of designers and the corruption of this industry. Nevertheless, I still decided to choose piracy as my topic because I believe that we have to challenge what we believed in order to make changes.
Design Research Project with J&J Design, SVA
In this project, our team worked on a topic about young women's mental wellbeing and how it's influenced by social media. During the research, we realized that what young women experienced on social media is a "feedback loop", where they consistently seek out content that makes them feel good but being exposed to more harmful content and finally stuck in that loop. And we create a prototype called Instabrace to help them break away from the loop.
Co-creation Workshop with Royal Collage of Arts
This is a co-creation project by Zekun and sailor Peng. Through limited emails and sketch sessions, Zekun worked with a sailor who is constantly trying to kill time on his 8-month sailing trips. Zekun found his perception of time opposite to the norm of trying to make more time in the city life. Together they made a device that can count down from 8-month to 0 or from 0 to 8-month - an attempt to count on each precious day.

Product Design Project
Swing is a commercial spin-bike that provides users with an immersive experience. Making this spin-bike capable to swing from left to right enable users to perform more movements on it. Adding a gaming system based on these movements makes the whole exercise experience more immersive and attractive. When spinning, different movements will be projected on the screen in the front of the room, and scores are being tracked while users perform movements accordingly.
Typography and Brand Identity at SVA
The backstreet is a night food market that opens at the back street of Nottingham University, Ningbo. The booths here don’t have any license and a food market is not allowed by the university. That why this market can only start at around midnight. It’s the guilty pleasure of all university students. Thousands of students come here to find their favorite comfort food after cramming for exams.
