Tuan is a seasoned graphic and exhibit designer, particularly experienced in wayfinding, digital media, and product design. He finds innovative ways to exhibit objects and create public art from found and repurposed items. Tuan worked closely on developing and producing works for Beakerhead, a Calgary-based festival mash-up of art, science, and engineering installations. He graduated from the Alberta University of the Arts, where he studied visual communication and sculpture under internationally recognized artist Katie Ohe. Tuan’s extensive multidisciplinary art experience includes commissioned work for private collectors and public shows in Toronto and Calgary. The creative process for Tuan begins with an idea and evolves from the heart, mind, and soul. He embraces the design opportunities and creative freedom he has with our clients in the Calgary studio.
Where do you find inspiration?
In my family, friends, nature and found objects.
How do you spend your weekends?
Spending time with my family doing activities like hockey, soccer, basketball or swimming. I also love making art through a variety of mediums such as painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video editing or serigraph printing.
