Simon Yan is the founder of Bluemap Design, a New York-based industrial design studio specializing in product and packaging design. Born in Hong Kong, Yan is hugely influenced by the way things are constructed. His interest in art and design gave him the idea that products are design objects that are part of a lifestyle. Initially interested in graphic design, he soon realized that he was far more excited by 3D forms and how people interact with them. He major in industrial design at Pratt Institute. After graduating from Pratt with a degree in industrial design he found himself working with several top-ranked design studios before starting his own practice in 2001. Yan is meticulous to design. Every detail is thought about. His design is geared to the way people move, walk, and pick up objects, all to be used, as advertised, without thinking.
