AAPI Safety Lanyards


To combat the rise of Anti-Asian racism across North America in 2020, Sunny Chén, Vicki Tan, and Zoe Xu started an open-sourced intiative to distribute safety lanyards to AAPI elderly. Read more about this amazing initiative on the official siteX.

I worked with the team to create 3D visuals (modeled, rendered, and animated) to use across marketing, promotion, and on the website.

My Thoughts

The past two months as of writing this (Apr 2021) have been really hard on my mental health due to the amount of anti-Asian violence across NA. I started on this project before a devastating hate crime hit the news, and working through it, wanted to put as much as I could towards this project using the skills and software I had access to.

I'm humbled and proud to be any part of this amazing initative. 


Closed for work but open to chat, especially with:
Small and local businesses, creatives and communities that are anti-racist, pro-LGBTQ+, feminist, and BIPOC-operated, organizations doing social good, students of any age with questions about anything (if I don't have your answer, I'll help you find it), and especially nerds (that extremely niche obsession of yours counts too).
