ABOUT

Hello, Im a Singapore-based designer with experience in the digital marketing & software engineering industry. I believe the essence of good design is "balance". Aesthetics and technology should complement each other seamlessly to create products with amazing user experience.

UX/UI

Central to my UX/UI work is to develop functioning prototypes. I believe this gives a better experience than static mockups, and is useful for product testing.

Art & Craft

One of my greatest passion is illustration. My illutration skills are intrumental in my ideation and visualisation work. Im a crafter who loves to think with my hand.

Code

I design in codes, and am proficient at various front-end technology. I use Sass extensively which greatly enhances productivity in my prototyping or development projects.

Rapid Prototyping

Mockups don’t tell a story, so I prototype. The key to great design is iteration - continous testing and refinement. First, I develop a clickable wireframe, then build layers of typography, colors & imagery. One of my favourite frameworks for prototyping is Foundation by Zurb.

Sketching

In my free time, I love to sketch on my iPad using the popular app Paper by 53. I had used Paper in my work too for concepting or storyboarding. Please visit my Tumblr blog to view my samples of my sketches.
