A Professional and Playful UI Alchemist

Why?

I believe the user interface of a website or app is a direct factor to affect the outcome of clients’ businesses. The UI is literally the face of products/services. 

Meanwhile, I cast the following spells on the product:

  • Pixel perfect UI.
  • Carefully picked typeface(s) and colours.
  • Clean, artful designs that are both intuitive and functional.
  • Translating high-level requirements to achieve clients’ goals into necessary interaction flows and artefacts.

As a result, good UI can give huge impacts on people’s life. This is the reason for me to do UI design and I love it. I want to be a part of a project that creates products/services appreciated by users.

My go-to tools are Adobe CC, Sketch and InVision.
