I am independent, proactive, and able to play different roles within projects. I have a deep affinity with applying state-of-the-art technologies in designing interactive products, systems. I very much appreciate Peripheral Interaction (allowing effortless interaction) and Radical Atoms (seamlessly coupling the physical and digital world). I possess the skill sets from my bachelor’s of Product Design and master‘s of Interaction Design. With mixed skill sets, I am able to ideate, develop, evaluate designs with aesthetics and values.
As a strong believer of ‘standing on the shoulders of giants’, I believe skills, toolkits, and knowledge shall be as accessible as possible. I consider myself, to some extent, a technology enthusiast as I am always open-sourcing collaborative and personal projects to develop myself and benefit others in the community; On the other hand, I think I am also a researcher as I always conduct an exhaustive investigation of design precedents and constructive literature to build a holistic view of the field. This, therefore, characterizes my personality in design: rational and practical. I tend to develop incremental designs rather than radical ones, which is significantly inspired by Oki Sato’s design philosophy: the consolidation of two irrelevant designs; Besides, I also strive for intriguing and innovative concepts while implementing novel Human-Computer Interaction techniques to add new features or enrich the experience through usability, interactions, or aesthetic qualities.
