Although I'm dubbed as "Designer" I believe user research is the staple of my experience design process. I layout all data and information I learned from my research into visuals so that we can have end-to-end flow and problem view as one contextual scenario.

Based on this artifact, I start actual designing. After a few iterations of idea exploration, I make quick prototype to test and validate ideas further, eliminating critical issues in a process. I’m a habitual communicater of my ideas and work-in-progress design with my peers. I really love creating school-project-like atmosphere where we are equal, frank, and sometimes professionally inappropriate...I think it's a good team culture.

I always put my first priority as to deliver something we can proud of, not only as an individual, but also as a team.
