Charmaine Li

Hii. I’m a Toronto-born writer and editor, living in Berlin. I mostly cover art, design and technology—and the ways in which they intersect. I also write about anything else that leads me into a(n internet) rabbit hole. 

         My writing has appeared in print and online publications such as Newsweek, AnOther, CNN Travel, Kinfolk Magazine, Dazed Digital, Broccoli Magazine and mono.kultur among many others.

I’m the founder of ONEIRIC.SPACE, an experimental research platform dedicated to exploring our relationship to dreams and the unconscious through an interdisciplinary lens. It consists of the online magazine, a monthly newsletter, events and special projects.

        Previously, I was an editor at iGNANT, senior editor at and an editor at Vertical Media.


I also work with companies and institutions to develop content strategies, advise on brand publications and create content. I’ve worked with clients including MINI, Helmholtz Association of Research Centers, Zalando, DLD, ArtRebels, Factory Berlin, Samsung NEXT and Startup Guide.
