I am an experienced designer who can design and do some coding as well. Coming from a Graphic Design background enables me to pay special attention to typography, color and usability. And having worked extensively in South Korea gives me insight into what international clients may want. I have done freelance work as well, which has allowed me to understand how to handle important deadlines by myself. I enjoy completing and taking on new projects. A good website or application allows customers to get the experience they need. My goal is not only a elegant design, but one that functions as intended.
With a mix of university, work experience and certifications I have acquired extensive skills with UI/UX design, web development and print design.
Please look through my portfolio too see all the short term and long term projects that I have been involved with. I have also had the opportunity to work with large corporations like Skechers and Samsung, as well as startups.
years of experience
My career includes 6 years of design work in Korea and 6 years of experience in the United States. This gives me a unique insight into international design standards.
I received my baccalaureate in fine arts from Sangmyung University. While at Sangmyung I studied industrial design which included UX/UI, 3D modeling, product design, and furniture design. In addition to my college studies I have taken supplementary courses (At Santa Monica Community College for example) in HTML5, CSS3, JAVA, JQuery, C language and web design.
In my career I have designed for phone, interactive, advertising and web design. I have had many opportunities to broaden my design skills and knowledge. I have worked at several mobile design and advertising agencies.In South Korea, I designed icons, flash idle, photo frame designs, and UI designs for Samsung and LG. Additionally, I was the lead for the TT Talk messenger application Android and iPhone UI designs. Since I came to the United States, I have created advertisement designs (Newspaper ads, posters, magazine ads, flyers, flash banners, TV commercials, email marketing, web site design, brochures, billboard designs). My last position, in the Los Angeles Fashion District, dealt with online shopping designs and eCommerce plugins.
