Puki Design and Sign is a nonprofit organization that generates its own revenue by offering graphic design services; thanks to this profit we are able to fund philanthropic endeavors for deaf student in Shanghai. Our mission is to empower deaf students to live self-reliant lives so they can find their way in the mainstream society.
Puki’s goal is to train deaf graduates and provide internships for them. This is how we not only create better job opportunities for graphic deaf designers but also overcome the communication barrier between deaf and hearing people. This project is called The 1 by 1 Internship Plan.
In Puki branding and design we work with deaf and hearing designers. They provide high-quality design services to (inter)national companies, public institutions and NGO’s. As a Chinese social enterprise our clients enjoy our innate knowledge of the Chinese marketplace. They also immediately support our philanthropic endeavors.
Thanks to these core competences we already found a sustainable work environment for 42% of the deaf graduates who we worked with in the past. Please contact us if you want to help deaf students to catch their dreams in ways you think possible.
