Chloe-Trang Phan is a designer from HCMC, Vietnam. Her works
encompass branding, editorial, illustrations, and product-based
experiences. Currently, she is exploring avenues between design
pedagogy, codified language as protest, and the necessity of intellectual
property & contract laws, with regards to her design practices.
“Working towards a Curriculum by Vietnamese Designers,
for Vietnamese Designers, and of Vietnamese Designers.”
“A New Design Curriculum” is a collection of 3 different texts, responding to the
theme of Vietnamese Graphic Design Education for young Vietnamese high school
students. The project focused on investigating ways to integrate early Design
Education into Vietnamese public high school’s curriculum. It took up forms of
writings, curriculum research, and visuals to predict and assert the value of a
structured Design Education. As an extension of the project, I devised promotional
and teaching materials with the hope of utilizing them in the near future.
