Bryant Ju

Graphic Design


I’m a graphic designer, illustrator, and confident perfectionist based in Houston, Texas.

I help the people and community I work with make functional yet elegant brand identities that may involve heart-warming imagery.

When I’m not designing, you can find me being inspired by watching animated cartoons, thinking about how to improve my skincare routine, and sketching down doodles that long to be on paper.

Let’s dive headfirst into a project together. I promise I’ll only be shy for the first minute of our call.

With a background in studio art (Go ‘Nads and Hook ‘Em!) and a passion for communicating visual stories, I discovered that art asks questions whereas design answers them. Together, I believe that the balance between these two practices can create unique solutions for anyone who has an idea.

My work helps people better navigate spaces by bringing clarity and ideas to the forefront, devoid of any excess clutter. My designs are research-focused and thought-provoking, making people question why things are the way they are. How do I get people to slow down and care more, to be empathetic and mindful of the present?

With this practice, I hope to create designs that are sincere and make this world a better place.

Identity System

With around 2.3 million citizens, Houston has firmly placed itself as the fourth largest city in the United States, becoming a crossroads where diversity, cultures, energy, and space exploration all intersect together. However, to the general public, Houston is sometimes overshadowed by the looming cities of New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. How can people become informed of the magnificence that Houston has to offer?

Design Inspiration

In comes the idea of Grade H, a new youtube channel created by Jason Bourassa and Aerie Hsu. The mission of Grade H is to inform the public on the qualities that makes Houston stand out as the best city the U.S. has to offer.

Sophistication, incredible generosity, and civic selflessness are traits that Houstonians embody, and thus we wanted the Grade H brand to exemplify as well.
The system takes inspiration from the invisible border that surrounds the greater Houston area. Highways are represented as linear elements, celebrating the intersectionalities that reflect a dynamic community of art, food, entertainment, and attractions.

Grade H’s Youtube and Twitch channels are scheduled to go live in October 2019.
