Wei Gu

Industrial Designer

Wei joined Whipsaw in 2014 and has been busy with a huge variety of projects for most of our clients. Prior to joining Whipsaw Wei worked at Wilddesign, a design firm in Shanghai, where he is from.

Although Wei aspires to the established form-follows-function approach to design, he also loves getting out of his comfort zone as a way to learn and enrich himself as a designer. He is tenacious and hard working, and often the last one to leave the building. Related to his drive for excellence, Wei was a long jump and triple long jump athlete while growing up in China.

Wei graduated from the Academy of Art University in 2014 with an Industrial Design MFA degree. He also has a design degree from Northwestern Polytechnic University in Xi’an China.
