I'm very honored to join the team holding the third exhibit of I wish I were NYC Dumbo. In this project, I was involved in art directing, graphic design, exhibit installation and photography.
Designed the poster, mini-invitation and facebook page promotion materials for this joined exhibit.

Ryo Shiba, a Japanese lawyer, writer and even podcaster living in NYC. He wishes he was a diva. "Diva has everything. Diva is confident. Diva knows what she wants. Diva has her voice. Diva has style.
