I’m currently working as a Digital Product Designer at Wondersauce, specializing in digital product, branding, and campaign. I create all aspects of digital experience for clients such as Scotts, Chick-fil-A, Abbott, Huntington Bank, and L’Oreal.
I was previously working as a Graphic Designer at NFM Lending where I created operating design assets and improved the loan process by 15%. While I was working there, I recreated Brand Identity as well as collateral marketing assets.
Before that, I was a Graphic Designer at Accelerate Korea and created brand and collateral designs for Betapitch, the international start-up conference hosted on Google’s Campus in Seoul. After the success of the conference, we received $500k in funding from the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning (South Korea).
Finally, I made a career switch to design. I came to the U.S. in 2013 and started studying for BFA in Advertising & Graphic Design at Columbus College of Art and Design. As technology thrives, everything is getting digitalized, I saw more opportunities in UI/UX design for my career path. Also, It was interesting to me because UX design is a combination of art and science and pull abstract idea out of head and make tangible solutions.
Back then, since there was not much resources and network regarding UI/UX design around me, I had to find my own way to develop my design skill sets. So I had to work on personal projects outside of work in my spare time by collaborating with other designers and developers.
In 2018, one of my projects, Aveda International, I was awarded "Winner of 2018” by Red Dot Award because of its empathetic approach and holistic design approach. The validation I received from a big design award in the early years of my journey of a UI/UX designer still encourages me now.
