Eva Chau is a Utah-based UX/UI designer who still sketches with pen and paper. Originating from Hong Kong and educated in the United States, Chau channels her training as an oil painter and web designer when practicing the art of lettering and typography.
Chau believes letterforms should come before styling or aesthetics in lettering and typography. Her work begins by hand-lettering with markers and brush pens, she then explores variations in composition through digitalizing.
In fall of 2012, Chau was awarded a solo exhibition by the Escalante Arts Festival; she produced a show of landscapes the following summer.
Her inspiration comes from Dana Tanamachi, Philip Eggleston, and Erik Marinovich, masters at elevating messages by incorporating unique aesthetics into letters.
