Ting Zhou is a multi-disciplinary designer/artist who specializes in graphic design, motion graphics, UI/UX design and photography. Originally from China, she graduated from the Beijing Institute of Graphic Communication in 2007 with a degree in art design. She received her MFA degree in visual communication design from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013, where she was awarded the SAIC New Artist Society Trustee Fellowship and the SAIC 2YR International graduate student scholarship.
As a multi-disciplinary designer/artist with a focus on UI/UX design, motion graphics, artist book and photography, she has been deeply engaged in the power of visual communication to impact our understanding of the world, and her design, animation and photography projects reflect the relationship between the culture identity, motherhood, feminisms and the digital realm. Her teaching methodology springs from a multicultural outlook, which is something she constantly strives to relate to the diversity of students. She believes in an open dialogue wherein students can freely express their opinions and thereby learn from one another.
Her works have been presented at Gallery 456 in New York, the Irish Centre, Shanghai, Tsinghua University, Beijing, and Nunnery Gallery in London. Her scientific visualization works were published as a journal cover in Nanoscale and Particle.
