Hi, I'm Yvon
A passionate UX designer with an industrial design background. I currently work as a design freelancer and an UX mentor at Designlab. Prior to my current position I was in Codementor, KKBOX, Yahoo building products.
Besides my design career, I am also active in several entrepreneur communities. I was the 2017 scholar and the venture pitch winner of MIT global Bootcamp (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Moreover, I support and advocate for female professionals in Taiwan tech industry and is the 2018 representative in design for 40 Under 40 selected by Girls in Tech Taiwan.
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.
I love to plant🌱, taking the photo📷, and play ball with my dog NOVY🐶. Also, love to explore new places 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.
