GET TO KNOW ME
A sneak peak about me.

I'm Kiki, an architectural designer turned passionate UI/UX designer.

Fusing my design background with my passion for technology and innovation drives me to create exceptional user experiences that solve real problems and make a positive impact. I'm a creative and resourceful designer with an entrepreneurial spirit and strong visual sense, I work collaboratively to deliver innovative user experiences.

In all projects, I seek to simplify the relationships between people and the interactive products they use through smart human-centric design. I'm not afraid of the new and the different, I love to face new challenges!

MORE ABOUT ME
Beyond design

Where I'm from -

What I do -

Fun fact -

I spent my childhood in Taipei, Taiwan, my teens in Vancouver, BC — and now I'm kick-starting my twenties in a city none other than Toronto, ON!

Outside of work I try to maintain consistent design practice. You can probably find me drawing, designing nails, curating my many Pinterest boards, among a million other artistic hobbies.

My favorite thing to do is to eat (my stomach is like a black hole), so you can always count on me for restaurant recommendations in the city! It probably doesn't hurt to mention that I love board games, sitcoms, and fashion!

PHILOSPHY
I believe design is..

a friend,

a bridge,

a superpower,

Design doesn’t just know you but gets you. In moments of frustration, Design actively seeks out solutions that uniquely serve your struggle. I’m a firm advocate for sensitivity and empathy (in both life and design!) and center my work around a deep understanding of people. 

Design happens in conversation with others! I’m always seeking opportunities in intersectionality: I love learning from designers and non-designers alike to better inform my craft and my ability as a collaborator.

- and with great power, comes great responsibility. Design is an instrument of influence that must be wielded with intention. I think deeply about what I want my design to achieve and only until it delivers upon its purpose do I sign my work.

I'd love to meet you!

Whether you’re a founder looking for a UX designer, a designer looking for a collaborator, or just a regular human looking for some conversation, I’d love to connect over some virtual coffee.
