Linh is an Art Director and Visual Designer based out of Queens, NY. During the day, duty calls as the Senior Designer at Merkley+Partners. Outside of the agency, he lives a double life as a Visual Designer under the creative identity, Liph. He has a strong background in art/design direction, illustration, branding, and visual design. Yet he is still constantly craving the next opportunity that he can bring to life. His design experience spans from a variety of outlets for a number of clients, such as Facebook, Reebok, Google, and YouTube. Born in Kansas City, raised on the west coast in LA, and then grew up in the Southwest in Dallas. After his professional career was in a stable place, he branched out to NYC to expand his experience, professionally and personally. Somewhere between all the relocating, he managed to attain a BFA in Graphic Design at the Art Institute of Dallas. In his triple life, Linh has his Canon or iPhone ready to capture interesting moments. Playing and watching sports has always been a hobby, from baseball cards to fantasy football. His highly competitive nature especially comes out when athletic events are involved. When the weather isn't too good, a number of board games fills his shelves along with movies and TV shows on the playlist.
