My Design Philosophy

Idea

Every project starts off with well-thought-out design. Every time I figure out what’s important and what to strip away, there's a solid rationale behind it.

IDEA

Usability

Having a deep understanding of human behavior and common interaction patterns, I follow the User-Centered design process starting from interviews and keep on iterating to bring users delightful experience.

Craftsmanship

I sweat over all the details, both big and small, crafting visually appealing interfaces and make them come alive using the tools from Adobe Creative Suite to Axure and Xcode.

Collaboration

I truly enjoy what I do, and have the desire of collaborating with teammates to start from idea to execution.
