I am Cam-Anh, a Vietnamese designer based in Berlin.

In short, I am a communication designer/ artist/ interior architecture student and a mom.

My encounter with art and design was not direct. While studying Business Law at Vietnam National University in Hanoi, I have realized that I enjoyed taking design night courses rather than debating for hours about politics or economics without coming to an ultimate solution. 
I always want to work on something else that truly matters, with a visual impact. Starting with my first full-time job as a Junior Designer in a boutique design studio (Hanoi, 2011), I am gradually finding a way to draw a connection between a rational mindset and an instinctive artistic production. This could be an unusual combination when working in the creative field, but also a challenging and exciting journey for me.

With aim of taking art and design more seriously, I have decided to relocate from my homeland, after ending a full-time senior designer position at an advertising agency in Saigon. I started (again) with an art/ humanitarian internship in India for six months, then to Berlin in summer 2016.

On this site, you can see my main practice with a focus on typography - the art of exploring visual, verbal and non-verbal language. My interest in typography was perhaps inspired by the chaotic, breathless craziness of Saigon, its combinations of old and new; as well as my six-year-old son, Dưa, learning to write!

I am also taking part in both *foundation class 2018 programme, Weißensee Art Academy Berlin and distance schooling for my BA Interior Architecture & Design (Hons) degree at the University of Hertfordshire, UK.

Apart from commissioned pieces, some of the selected artworks were exhibited at the Goethe Institute Hanoi, Germany Embassy Hanoi, Vadodara - India (2016) and Rundang Weißensee Berlin (2018).

Please drop me a line if you have any questions, including CV inquiries or updates about current /upcoming projects, or simply to say hello.
