I got into design to solve problems, not just to make things pretty.
I am Yunzi, a Permanent Resident in Singapore, originally from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In 2013, I came to Singapore to study a multidisciplinary course in NTU called “Information Engineering and Media”.
Today, with a background in front-end development, design and electrical engineering, I become a designer who can bridge the gap between designers and developers effectively, without compromising the design vision.
How I work?
My daily life revolves around strategising project approaches and running a range of activities from workshops facilitation, design research, concept ideation, prototyping, usability testings to liaising with clients and stakeholders.
During the concept development phase, I create wireframes and prototypes to get my design ideas across to my audience. At the end of the project, my designs are user-tested, data-driven and technically feasible under various constraints.
To date, I am 3 years in the UX field and have a portfolio designing for 5 industries: defence, lottery, healthcare, education and telecommunications. 3 of my projects were highlighted as significant wins to the company.
Design team collaboration
I have experience working with UX researchers and other designers on large-scale enterprise projects. We identified our clients’ operational and organisational problems, then created interactive prototypes for the product teams to develop into a functional product.
Product team collaboration
I was also embedded in 6 product teams as the sole product designer. For these projects, I collaborated closely with the product owner, project managers, offshore and/or local developers throughout the product development cycle, from brief to launch.
