Design Rehab is empathy in design. is a process journal. is a thoughtfully curated shop.
Hello, my name is Barry Lai. I’m a multidisciplinary art director based in San Francisco. I believe in problem solving through meaningful digital and analog experiences. At the core of these solutions is visual communication, an art form that must be succinct, direct, and lasting. This site hosts a body of work deeply rooted in culture but finesses the experience through visual communication.
The Design Rehab Shop is an extension of my taste in goods. My partner and I design, source vendors, and curate our shop's partners. What you see in our shop is chosen with intent or designed in-house and manufactured domestically. It’s essentially everything that you will see our studio as inspiration and decor, enjoy.
