Hands Toward the Universe

David Huang, Hands Toward the Universe, 2024

Huang’s banner design Hands Toward the Universe echoes the theme of the year, “Labor and Love,” reminding us that we do not exist in isolation and we learn from our surroundings through the joy of exploration and the process of creation.

David Huang is an illustrator and designer who graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2017. He has been illustrating since then. He also earned a certificate from Type West for type design. His works have been recognized by 3×3, American Illustration, World Illustration Awards, and Society of Illustrators. His clients include New York Times, New Yorker, Boston Globe, Chobani, Quartz, Vox, Citi Bank, AARP, Hyundai, AngelList, Die Zeit, Curbed, The Verge, LA Times, Culture Trip, Bandcamp and many more. 

He grew up in Taipei and spends most of his time in three places close to his heart: New York, London, and the Bay Area. When he isn’t illustrating, he enjoys taking the subway to try out restaurants, dancing on the weekends, learning new languages intensively, and searching for random historical facts on Wikipedia. david-huang.com | @omguac
