2014 Post-graduate Fellow
Min Yeh graduated in 2014 from the Design for Social Impact Master’s Program, which was a milestone in the integration of her artistic skills and social interests as a whole. Yeh holds a BFA in Fine Arts, with a professional focus in graphic design, and excels in visual communication across multiple disciplines. Her focus is to effect change in personal interaction and social engagement, most recently resulting in her thesis: a toolkit for enhancing interaction across cultural barriers. As an expansion, her work on designing interactive learning experiences with the ESLI program at the University of the Arts in summer 2014 demonstrated the value of design thinking in the education system. As a designer, Yeh believes design tools and methods can act as an essential trigger in shifting an individual’s mindset and behavioral changes. Her work experiences over the past two years with local communities reassured her that design has the capacity to bring innovative solutions to an organization by recognizing how human factors connect to the system as a whole. Now, with her thesis project toolkit as a foundation, Yeh has a new goal of using design to improve different levels of interaction between communities. Meanwhile, she is exploring new places to travel, new faces to meet, and new cultural barriers to bridge.
