About my design journey... 

 

Thanks for taking the time to visit my portfolio! I am a Product Designer with a curiosity to explore future possibilities. Here's my design journey. ​

 

Before UX, I graduated with a BA (Hons) Advertising @Hong Kong, training my digital, graphic, branding, animation, social media, and advertising skills.  After my BA graduation, I became a Yahoo Designer for 3 years, providing integrated creative design solutions. Throughout working on different clients' projects, I critically think about what is design.

My transition into UX stemmed from my belief that design can help people solve problems, not just communicate better. I want to put people first and design something that can make them live better. Therefore, I moved to London to study MA User Experience Design at the University of the Arts London. Learning and working on UX equipped me with a human-centred and experimental mindset. Our world is transforming because of technological innovation and globalization. User expectations and experiences are changing all the time. I consider myself a Product Designer who understands and accepts human behaviour the way it is and not the way we want it to be. I am enthusiastic about creating genuine and conscientious products for people.

Outside of work... 

 
 

Apart from being a Designer, I’m a cat lover. Having a cat makes me a better UX Designer. Two questions always pop up in my mind are "What makes my cat love me more?" and "How to communicate better with my cat?"... These are some thinkings around user experience, so "What makes your users love your product?" :D

I like daily drawing. Sometimes it helps me find puzzle pieces of memories, some weird ideas, some hidden self and more. I feel relaxed and concentrate more when I draw! so how well do you know yourself?
