Henry Liu is a first generation Chinese American, and a proud native of San Francisco, who grew up as a child of the ‘80s and came of age in the ‘90s. He is a self-taught designer who finds it better to design by intuition rather than be confined by the rigidity of rules and trends. Henry appreciates authenticity and quality over quantity, and remembers a time when the world was analog, when the latest music came on vinyl and cassettes, and when relationships were built in-person, not through social networking sites.
Henry had been working as a freelance designer for non-profits and grassroots organizations, when he happened upon a company called TUMIS and was drawn to its reputation of producing poignant and beautiful social justice/activist art. Henry knew he wanted to be a part of this movement, and in 2007, he joined TUMIS as a designer and web integrator. Henry does not see himself as an opponent of the digital age or the Internet, but more as a facilitator bringing digital medium back to the good ole days.
