Hi! I am Jessica, a hybrid designer with strong visual aesthetics and deep appreciation towards the technology behind.
I create user interface and design user experience with the user’s best interest in mind, while balancing the product goals expected by the stakeholders.
I was once told by a very wise friend of mine that “art is the flesh, technology is the skeleton, and the design is the soul.”
After being in the game/tech industry for over five years now, I appreciate and only grow eager to understand even more of the interlinking nature of all the three aspects. A product is indeed a life which has the ability to create great influence.
I believe that sustainable designs are from the understanding and appreciation towards the inter-dependency and dialogues between a product, its creators and sponsors, and its users.
Please feel free to contact me for questions or potential job inquiries:
