Hong Yu

A creative individual seeking to bring a fresh perspective to UX, drawing from my background in Sustainable Fashion. As a Design Strategist, my work has spanned three continents – I have coordinated mass-productions with Chinese garment factories, sourced innovative materials for a wearable tech firm in Berlin, facilitated textile re-purpose workshops in Brooklyn, etc. My adaptability within diverse topics and teams allows me to effectively identify and solve problems using various research techniques. Through interdisciplinary collaboration, I have strengthened my listening skills, and learned to translate my work into clear, simple insights that clients can quickly understand.

I am currently accepting freelance work and on the hunt for full-time UX|UI positions. If you’d like to talk about a project you want help with or need advice about product design or how to recycle your unwanted garment, just send me a message  : )
