As a designer, I’m always ready to tackle new challenges with technical constraints and limitations. I get very excited thinking about the possibility to collaborate and develop creative yet functional experiences focusing on the users. One of my aspirations is to bring inspiring and clean designs into intuitive and easy-to-use products. I’m looking to apply my skills and continually learn while creating beautiful and delightful products.

Projects such as the launch of Declaration Restaurant’s responsive website, HopJays’ branding and website, Bloveabl’s product wireframe and flow, Pichastock, and Jin+Ja.
