Nice to meet you, I’m Lili—a curious designer, playful maker and print enthusiast.

Currently working at Pentagram NYC, I strive to promote unity through visual identities, editorial, environmental, digital and printed matter.

Find Another Teacher

I was asked to share and submit a piece of advice that I apply to my practice. I don't remember where I heard this, but I found it buried in my sketchbook (full of my favourite overheard conversations/podcast discussions/advice I have been given—I recommend doing this, by the way).

In fact, this quote was probably not said in a creative context. But from my understanding, it states we must practice our skills with those that are better than us. And when we find them, keep them close—speaking less and listening more. If there is no evidence of high-level thinking, we must find another teacher.

To purchase a print, please drop me an email or DM.
