Yu Jordy Fu | TEDxTokyo 2013
Creating love through design has been Yu Jordy Fu’s goal since she was six, when she had her first solo art exhibition at the Beijing Capital Museum—a feat she followed a year later by publishing her first book. After studying at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design London and the Royal College of Art in London, Jordy trained as both an artist and architect before working for the influential London designers Future Systems and the London office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. In 2005, the British Council selected Jordy as one of ten young designers sent to represent British creativity in China. Major awards for architecture, drawing and environmental design have followed. Jordy is the creative director of the world’s biggest fashion media company, FashionTV, and for the past five years has also headed her own design company, Marques and Jordy, in London, Bangkok, Hongkong and Quanzhou.
