Looking for opportunities for 2015


2014

Most recently I was a product design intern on commerce team at Facebook, designing solutions that helps people find things they'll love.

User Experience Design, Prototyping

I was a design intern on platform team at Squarespace, working closely with the team on the new developer platform. I helped redesign the content in some templates in the store, and also concept new templates.

Visual Design, User Experience Design

Together with Kevin Ng and Tina Chan, we concepted an online marketplace that allows people to easily find and exchange their goods and services. Platter was designed to contribute to sustainable development; to reduce waste and prevent accumulation of unused resources.

As a design consultant at Format I worked closely with the team for their online magazine, ECR (Explore, Create, Repeat). I designed “Make/Design/Shoot in Toronto”, an interactive guide for creative professionals in Toronto. I also contributed to ECR Cover Photography, a blog showcasing best of photography daily.

I designed an educational information graphic website in effort to stop the Canadian commercial seal hunt, the largest and most inhumane animal slaughter of marine mammals today.

As a fun side project I built a quick and simple interactive game website, where a player can discover a personalized, artistic object based on their visual preferences.
