About

Bonjour, Hi

My name is Chenyuan Zhang, a UX Designer with a web development background. My passion is to design products with extraordinary usability and aesthetics while respecting technical constraints.

 

I believe a great experience design should dissolve in the interaction of the product where people barely notice the trace of good UX. A big fan of “Don’t Make Me Think” and a daily practitioner of Design Thinking.

Why I chose to work in UX

As I was working as a web developer, I found myself enjoying more discovering ideas rather than implementing them.

 

Also making people feel good and their lives easier adds a moral layer to this profession, which is becoming a rare quality in the world of business.

My list of 3 evil products

  • Touchscreens on cars

  • Smartphones the size of a brick

  • Most Microsoft products

Something interesting about me

In spare time, I like to experiment different recipes in the kitchen. Occasionally you would hear me playing Ed Sheeran on my acoustic guitar.
