Teresa Chan is a graphic designer whose passion for design began as a young child. She would find herself sitting for hours at a time in her grandfather’s tailoring business in San Francisco. Mesmerized by the beautifully patterned fabrics, she found the relationship between the images and the patterns they formed was magic, a language with which she could fully express herself.
Teresa was accepted at San Francisco State University where she focused on Industrial Arts. From there she went on to study Advertising Design at Chung Yuan University in Taiwan. After her studies, she dove into her design career where she utilized her talents in various capacities, from managing complex print production to designing brand materials. You can find her work in retail stores and through collaborations with some of the world’s top brands.
Teresa Chan has now come full circle with Chan Graphics. She has returned to surface pattern design with the memories of her grandfather and to the language that started it all. Teresa’s patterns are inspired by the natural world with its expansive varieties of plants and animals and its infinite intricacies. She strives to transport you to vistas that are both deeply familiar and imaginative. Her style aspires to be traditional, with a modern twist. It is organic and playful, waking our imagination and memories through the design of florals, animals, and keepsakes of all kinds. We are proud to feature five of her beautiful designs in a variety colourways at Milton & King. Take a look below.
