Let’s talk freelance, grab a (digital) coffee, or just be friends.
Selina is a communication designer born and raised in Nanjing, China, a picturesque ancient city of literati and artists.  Currently dwelling in Providence while pursuing her 2-year MFA (’25) in Graphic Design at Rhode Island School of Design. She received her BFA in Communication Design from Washington University in St. Louis.

She takes pride in her one-of-a-kind Chinese name, Kehuan (可幻). It means being capable of imagination, which she tries to manifest in every work with her attention to research and craft. Illustrator by nature, graphic designer by nurture, and interaction designer on ocassions — she believes that her in-depth generalism in visual communication is able to transcend the dichotomies of digital and analog, image and typography, as well as western and oriental.

She loves to spontaneously hop on random buses to get lost, chase sunsets on foot along waters, or immerse herself in existential crisis. Her dream superpower in childhood was the ability to fly, but has since changed into teleportation after she left home.
