About Ian


I was born in Shanghai China, now based in the Netherlands. Based on a deep understanding of visual design, I excel at problem detecting, analysing. I am also interested in psychology - a powerful way for me to solve problems in UX design.

During my master's study in the Netherlands I am fascinated by interactive design and subsequently focus to UX design.

I love teamwork and always get excited by igniting sparks in the team and gaining new knowledge. I believe Good Design creates Happiness.

Primary Skills



User research


“You can not understand good design if you don’t understand people” - Dieter Rams
I have always been intrigued by the psychology behind people's behaviours and words. This particular interest drove me a way to be a UX designer. I took user research course in interaction design foundation, aim to learn a professional way of user interview & observations & testing, thematic analysis.



Communication


I am good at raising the right questions, ask them in the right way. By connecting to people and asking questions I understand my role as a designer better.
