Hello! I’m a Chicago based designer currently at Span and previously at Designsake Studio and Something Else. My practice focuses on visual identities, editorial design, and interaction, and often explores the connections between culture, identity, and design. My work has been featured by The Brand Identity, The Design Kids and Communication Arts.
In my free time, I paint, read, hoard trinkets, and I’m hoping to travel to all 62 of the U.S. National Parks some day (34% of the way there!)

Open to freelance opportunities and resume available upon request. Feel free to email me at cheryl.kao.ck@gmail.com and to keep in touch with me on Instagram @cheryl.design!
