Me, a design strategist
A traditional Chinese soul, a free Canadian spirit.
My designs are all context driven and often found ironic. I have a habit of putting straightforward (sometimes hidden) “aha, I see what you did there” moments in all of my work to reward the curious. I consider this to be a part of the job of a good designer: leaving gems for the user to discover and creating a thirst for depth in all objects. This is the experience that I try to create for all my works.
I believe design will save the world, starting with rewarding the curious.
Designers are Answers.
Born curious in a traditional business Chinese family perusing a career in design has never been easy. After I graduated with a human resources specialist degree from the University of Toronto, I have decided to drop everything, and chase my passion in becoming an industrial designer at OCADU. Taking the longer route in becoming a designer has not gone to waste.
4 years of business background gave me a layer of business insights over everything I see. These two skill sets granted me the power to funnel unrealistic fantasies into functional objects that can satisfy real world constraints, while maintaining its romantic core.
