Born in Beijing, Liu grew up in Berlin and went to university in Bristol, UK then moved back to Berlin to establish her studio, Yang Liu Design. Since 2010, Liu has been the head of the department of communications design at the Berlin Technical Art University. She works internationally designing posters, books, and brand logos.
