Li’s passion for graphic design began whilst studying architecture at Berkeley in California. Securing a position at the innovative graphic design magazine Emigre after his graduation, Li worked on distribution, type-facing and pixel resolution before moving to New York in 1999. After working for a mix of publications including Interview and The Observer, Li joined the fashion art direction company Baron & Baron in 1993, gaining extensive experience under the guidance of Fabien Baron.
Established in 2000 as the New York branch of Parisian design firm Work In Progress, Li’s newly opened agency specialised in the fields of logo design, brand identity and collateral design and worked closely with brands within the fashion, beauty and art industries. The agency was named Li Inc in 2008, and operates independently.
