About Me

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?

When I was a UX consultant, my daily life revolves around strategising project approaches and running a range of end-to-end design activities: from conducting qualitative user research and facilitating design sprint workshops to defining design directions and creating clickable prototypes for usability testing (UT).

Depending on projects, I also liaised with clients and stakeholders to provide design updates. Time to time, I might collaborate with Scrum teams to develop proofs-of-concept (PoC) or minimal viable product (MVP) within tight project delivery timelines.

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 the area of military aerospace, logistic & inventory, project delivery, sales, education, healthcare and innovative technology. 3 of my projects were highlighted as significant wins to the company. Currently, I’m working as an in-house UX designer, exploring the lifestyle and e-commerce areas.

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.
