Challenging the rules of gender through cuteness and color.
Emilie Liu is a motion graphic designer and illustrator based in New York City. Born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan, she receives her BFA in Advertising from the National Chengchi University, Taipei in 2010 and her MFA in Computer Art with a concentration in motion graphics from the School of Visual Arts, New York in 2012. Since 2006, Liu has received numerous awards for her animation work, including Adobe Design Achievement Awards Semifinalist, the Taipei Creative CF, and Taipei Times Advertising Award. The combination of her delicate hand drawn images and computer animation creates a unique style.
It is a hybrid 2.5D animation, which explores gender identity and our society’s need to always
categorize one’s gender as either male or female. By using a playful color palette and paper constructions built in After Effects, Liu tackles a
serious subject in a disarming way, and opens a dialogue without forcing a narrow view on gender
