Northwestern junior goes viral with graphic design project


Right now it has 250,000 views on Medium. The day after I published it, I woke up in
the morning and I woke up to like, billions of e-mails from people and that’s when I knew
that this was going to be viral in the design community. I am Jason Yuan. I am a junior theater major and at the end
of this quarter, I am transferring to Rhode Island School of Design in Providence
where I will be a graphic design major. Jason was in two of my classes concurrently
last Spring, a user experience design class, and a design, thinking, and doing class. Jason is such a driven person. He lives and breathes design. He loves design
and I think all we do is reflect back for him that that’s okay. That it’s okay to love something so deeply
and to pursue it for the sheer love of the the game, not because you got a job or because
you’re good at it. He is good at it, but who cares? You love it, you have to do it. Just do it. I have a lot of ideas for how to make Apple
Music better. I have a lot of ideas that I can bring and
don’t want to see them go to waste. A lot of these screens are just me thinking
‘oh, maybe things can go like this, or maybe this can look like this’. Definitely, the main adjustment I made was
this idea of a sampler which is like ok so you go on streaming services to have easier
access to music, how can you discover more music in a way that perhaps no one has done
before? You get a list of new songs from perhaps artists
that you don’t know, and you hold down to preview some of that song if you like it you
can swipe down to add it to your library/playlist. In reality, the response that I got was that
people thought what I was doing was good or had potential and that I should keep going
and that was super super awesome to hear. Ultimately, my ultimate ultimate goal as a
designer is to somehow bring some kind of eastern aesthetic and influence and understanding
into design. I think that there is so much you can learn
from Chinese aesthetic, Chinese culture, you know this idea of symmetry, the bright colors,
being unapologetically loud, those are all very Chinese things that if you look at a
lot of graphic designers in Japan, they really brought a lot of the Japanese culture into design and
I really want to do that for China too.
