YING IS A CUSTOM
TYPE & LETTERING DESIGNER 
BASED IN NEW YORK
Growing up in Taiwan, Ying Chang was deeply influenced by her mother, a calligrapher, and father, a painter. Ying followed in her parents' footsteps and attended the National Taiwan University of Arts. After gaining her bachelor’s degree in Visual Communication Design, she bought a one-way ticket to New York to pursue a master’s degree in Communication Design at the Pratt Institute. 
Ying was immediately hooked upon taking her first calligraphy class and during her study at Cooper Union's Type@Cooper Extended Program, her true passion for lettering came into focus. Since then she has been creating logotypes and lettering works for a variety of organizations and publications including Pentagram, The Knot, The Nest, Domino Magazine, Memo Production, and more. Her work has also been published and recognized by Typism, GoodType, Typespire, etc. She is also recently awarded as 2020 Lettering Legend Runner Up by TypeFolk.
