My name is Chen Liang. I’m an art director and writer based out of Portland who can illustrate, design, and build things. 

I recently quit Wieden + Kennedy Portland to go freelance. I have, in my young life, worked on a wide variety of clients and made very important people laugh and say, “Chen, you are so absurdly funny and talented, it gives me hope for the future. I would definitely hire you if I wasn’t already the ruler of a very successful and cool country.”

No, I can’t tell you who those people are, but I can probably add you to that illustrious list. Hit me up.
