ABOUT

i'm allison chan.
nice to meet you!  

I'm currently in my 4th year of Interaction Design at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

My work focuses on social good through designing safe spaces that allow people to express themselves creatively and bringing people together through their individuality.

I'm interested in combining art and new technologies to push the boundaries of modern forms of self-expression.

In my free time, you can find me painting portraits, doodling on tote bags, and collecting the best cat reaction photos 🐱!

Interactive Art Exhibitor | Science World
I was lucky enough to work with TELUS World of Science over the summer to exhibit my project (E)ntity in the Eureka! Gallery.

I coordinated the exhibition with a cross functional group of Science World directors, designed the exhibition posters and promotional material, and attended and demonstrated to all visitors in the Recollections Space.
