ABOUT ME

Empathy, Aesthetics, Creativity

My name is  Jessica Yuan, a second-year graduate student at University of Maryland College Park. I am studying Human-Computer Interaction. My background is in Graphic Design and Interactive Arts and I have worked as a freelance visual designer. My clients are local businesses in Maryland including startups. After I finished my undergraduate studies, I realized that I loved digital product design because it is not only aesthetic but also functional, user-friendly and impactful.

 

I love challenging myself and experiencing new things. Finding and addressing issues in a community or a group is what makes the UX design process a powerful method to find problems and develop a possible solution.
