His work is selected into design book projects like Worldwide Graphic Design, Young Asian Graphic Designers, and DESIGN magazine.

NFT Digital Art Collection

PlayMode is Andy Huang’s first NFT art collection. This is an ongoing project of unique 1/1 pieces of portraits.

Andy's two-decades of digital experience design background shaped his thinking of simplicity. This principle became an important part of developing his artistic side. Inspired by mid-century graphic design, Andy is digitally handcrafted for all his artwork. He uses uncompromising flat graphics, precise outlines, simplified shapes, bold colors, and odd and funny sensibilities to create colorful, playful and expressive work. His intention is to explore a new direction to mix modern design tradition with new digital aesthetics and add more fresh energy to spread delightful vibes. He pushes the boundary of those static portraits to carry narrative and movement where each personality shines through with heart and soul. Andy believes in blurring the line between design and art to release its full potential and embrace the latest technology and platform to elevate people's visual appreciation artfully, culturally and economically.

If Andy's work could put a smile on your face that would be the best compliment for him! Cheers and forever learning, creating and sharing.
