Rio Chen

Master of Design in Designed Objects

Rio Chen is a communicator through objects, graphics, and talking. He acquired his industrial design degree and training background from Taiwan and Master’s degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MDes 2021). Instead of serving the industry with the skill of design, he continuously works on critical thinking topics with an interest in human ethical issues. As a communicator and creator, he focuses on the theme of “Spicy Pop”, which means criticizing the Pop culture the way as easy and accessible as the culture itself. Therefore, using an approachable narrative is the discipline throughout his practice. He believes we can make the world better by continuing to communicate with each other.
