DAXCITIES
WEBSITE DESIGN + PHOTOGRAPHY
Two cities that I used to stay, and one that
I'm currently living in. I love them all, had great memories there, but I decided to move forward because all the reasons I listed...
SUMMER 2014
San Francisco
San Francisco is the dreamland for
the world smartest ones, living here
in the peaceful but passionate Silicon Valley,
creating the world greatest products.
How cool it is in here!

I quit my job in 2014
moving here to start a new life,
having my Master of Fine Arts degree in
downtown SF, Academy of Art University.
Now I'm equipped with the skills of
building up websites and apps in hand code
from scratch, were truly big challenges
for a designer like me.
SUMMER 2014
South Beach
Home, Sweet home.

The place I called home is in the neighborhood of
AT&T Park, Pier 38, the heart of SF,
where is extremely beautiful in the morning
when the sun rises...
SUMMER 2014
The Clouds
They were in my childhood memories.

I used to head up looking into the sky
for the clouds when I was a boy. I guess
it's the free, unlimited and fearless spirit
that drived me keep moving forward.

And now, all the clouds are back. :)
FALL 2014
Folsom Street
It all started from here, and the Castro.

Folsom Street is the center of
San Francisco's men's leather community
since the mid-1960s.
SUMMER 2008
Beijing
Graduated in 2002
with my BFA in graphic design,
I still remember the summer when I got
my very first job offer at Sina.com,
one of the largest web portals in China.
The office located at the CBD of Beijing,
SOHO NEW TOWN, 16th floor, Building C.
I had a great great time, learned a lot.
the 5 years experience was unforgetable,
it was like my second college life.

Then I joined Baidu as a Senior UX Manager,
2 years later I quit and started daxpix studio.
Before I left Beijing, I was the CEO of MOKO,
the company that required my studio.
SUMMER 2010
798 Art District
Everybody knows about "798",
the art district which transformed from
the area of abondaned factories.

798 is located in Wang Jing,
it is the most famouse commercial
art district in Beijing.
Big brands give the events, build galleries,
Artists live there, build their studios,
hold amazing exhibitions and fairs there.
SUMMER 2008
Sanlitun
Sanlitun Taikoli is the center of young generations.

Apple opened up the vert first retail store here,
you can meet the top hipsters, fashion people,
and those who love music and arts in here.

Living 12 years in Beijing, I personally had
a great deal of memories here.
2005
Sina
The 5 years at Sina,
it was like my second college life.

I had a great great time, learned a lot.
the 5 years experience was unforgetable.

The table in the photo was taken in 2005,
you can tell from the size of display,
the keyboard and mouse.
2007
Baidu
My table at Baidu was more organized than
it at Sina. However, I had no idea
why I would use a MacBook with Windows XP running on it...
Summer 1985
Yantai
"I am always trying to find a place
where could be exactly looked the same as
my hometown in the old days."

Yantai was a beautiful and peaceful city
in my childhood memories, my home
was only 2 minutes walk from the sea.
I remembered that I could hear
the sound of waves flowing with the wind
to the back yard.

In the summer, I used to take a nap
after lunch, in the bamboo chair under
the shadow of the grapevine.
Those golden memories never fade.
SUMMER 1989
Have you seen my childhood?
I'm always close to my mom.

My dad took this photo for us,
after we had dinner at the sea side
in the summer of 1989.
SUMMER 1999
Painting Studio
The most valuable thing in a photo,
is the moment that never fades.

This photo was taken by accident.
He and I, we used to be best friends in college.
This was how we look like
when our teacher came in unexpectedly.
SUMMER 2000
My Drawing
It took me one whole week for this drawing.
Think I will never do another one
like this any more...
