About my design journey. 

 

Thanks for taking the time to visit my portfolio! I am a skilled and research-driven designer with a curiosity that explores future possibilities. I love learning and thinking from multiple perspectives! Here's my design journey.

Before UX, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Advertising @Hong Kong, spending many nights training my skills in website, graphic, branding, animation, social media and advertising, working on different clients projects, critically thinking about what is design. After my BA graduation, I worked at Yahoo as a Senior Creative Designer for 3 years, providing integrated creative design solutions. My experience in Advertising Design trained me with communication skills, strategic thinking and management skills.

My transition into UX stemmed from my belief that design can help people solve problems, not just communicate. I want to put people first and design something that can make them live better. This is the reason I moved to London for further studying of 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 UX Designer who believes in understanding humans, using research, user testing, creativity, and innovative technology to enhance user experience. I am enthusiastic about creating genuine and conscientious products for people.
