Come meet our eclectic and diverse group of creatives and strategists at Hwang Concepts – from Taiwanese Texans to French Canadians. We also hail from Britain, Bretagne (where French galettes come from), Southeast Asia and Hong Kong, of course!
Evelyn Hwang, Creative Director & Co-founder
Evelyn enjoys discovering and bringing out the best of each client's brand, be it a luxury resort, artificially intelligent speakers or an internationally acclaimed university. Her expat life brought her from Houston and Boston to France, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Along with her worldwide travels, she infuses each project with her global inspirations. Educated in the US and Europe at Boston University, Massachusetts College of Art, American University of Paris and Parson's School of Design, Paris, Evelyn appreciates good conversation, food and a cup of tea or glass of wine.
Jason Cheng, Head of Technology
Leiven Hwang, Head of Architecture & Co-founder
Leiven’s ardour for architecture and design has taken him from the US to the Far and Mideast where he has worked on projects in Taiwan, China, the Pacific Islands, India, Sri Lanka, and Dubai – from groundbreaking urban developments to seaside resorts; from luxury villas in Dubai to prototype hospital compounds for resource-strapped areas of Africa. A certified yoga teacher and graduate of the prestigious architecture school at University of California at Berkeley, Leiven relishes relaxing in nature on the beach or in the mountains of Taiwan.
Lucie Lecointre, Designer & Illustrator
With fiery French passion and adopted Chinese inspiration, Lucie brings life to every branding project. Her years spent in Shanghai studying a master's degree in Design and Anthropology gave her intimate insight into Chinese culture and taught her basic Mandarin. She is now tackling Cantonese and enjoying the Hong Kong scene through local and international cuisine, hiking and festivals.
Maia Hermosa, Art Director
Maia's friendly personality and detail-oriented eye make her popular with all our clients. Her passion for branding, creative design talents and strategic thinking help bring out the best in every project. Having studied Visual Communication at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts, Maia loves to travel and be surrounded by nature through hiking, camping and gardening.
