About my design journey...
Welcome to my portfolio! I'm a Product Designer driven by curiosity and a passion for exploring future possibilities. Here is my design journey.
With a BA (Hons) in Advertising @Hong Kong, I began my career as a Designer @Yahoo, honing my digital design, branding, animation, social media, and advertising skills. However, my desire to make a more meaningful impact led me to London, where I pursued an MA in User Experience Design @UAL. This transformative experience ignited my passion for human-centred design and creating products that deeply resonate with people.
I go beyond aesthetics and functionality, crafting experiences that evoke emotions and forge lasting connections. Drawing inspiration from art, culture, and nature, I infuse storytelling into my designs, believing every great product has a great story.
With strong leadership skills, collaborative and growth mindset, I stay up-to-date on industry trends and technologies, and I ensure my designs are user-friendly, visually striking, and future-proof. I excel in supporting diverse design teams, mentoring people, fostering innovation, and aligning design efforts with strategic objectives. I am enthusiastic about creating genuine and conscientious products that positively impact people's lives.
