Hi, I'm Yvon

A multidisciplinary product designer, specializing in UX. With the passion for entrepreneurship, I'm not only a critical thinker but also a practical doer. My design isn't limited to just best practice, I put my goal where world-class are and achieve it wholeheartedly. 

Currently, I work at Codementor - dedicated to helping people get coding help more effortlessly.  Previously worked at Asia's biggest music streaming service - KKBOX as a lead product designer. Co-worked with KDDI to optimize product in Japan market. Before that, I graduated from Taiwan’s best design school and majored in industrial design. Since I was a student, I've worked for a travel startup as a lead brand designer and also interning at Yahoo as an interaction designer for one year.

With these valuable experiences, I have equipped with multi-skills as a professional young designer. My creative approach, business acumen, product thinking give me the advantage of building the right features for the right people.

 

Travel makes me a better Designer

In 2011, I traveled to India, that was my first time travel aboard across Asia. The journey to the India was overwhelming, incredible - this is how I start falling in love with traveling. See my travel map🗺 here.

Inspired by book 《Hidden in plain sight》I  enjoy traveling to different cultures and contemplation in action. Those profound experiences broad my mind and leave me into a more global-perspective designer. 

Besides...

I love to plant🌱, taking the photo📷, and play ball with my dog NOVY🐶. Also, love eating cereal for breakfast. I'm proactively learning and seeking challenges to make myself forward. If you’d like to get in touch, feel free to say hello through any of the social links below.
