  DESIGN PHILOSOPHY


● As an aspiring minimalist, I pursue clean and intuitive design.
● I enjoy analyzing user patterns and building strategic ideas to solve user pain points.
● I design my design process. I experiment with design process, get feedback, synthesize the feedback, and iterate.
● I appreciate any feedback because it always gives me a chance to think from different perspectives.
● I prioritize the 'why' of my design. In addition to visually appealing design, I value and consider feasibility and resonance.
● For me, good design is created when functionality and aesthetics are most harmoniously balanced.


  MORE ABOUT ME


I am a multilingual designer who speaks English, Korean and Japanese. As a UI/UX designer, I am currently working for a company named STACK which is a cryptocurrency-based digital financial services platform. I completed a Bachelor's Degree in Visual Communication Design at Konkuk University, and a diploma in Multimedia Design and Development at Humber college with a focus on UI/UX.

Since I was young, I have always been very curious and inquisitive about things. During my university studies, I always cared about the logical part of visual design, which sometimes hindered me from creating visual products. However, since I encountered UI/UX, I have been thrilled with the fact that I "have to" inquire, analyze, simulate and test because these are the aspects exactly matching my personality and design philosophy. Since then, I have focused on UI/UX design and enjoyed it immensely.
