You had a Bachelor’s Degree in Inter­na­tional Busi­ness, what moti­vates you to per­suade a career in UX?

  • I really enjoy the way designer works! The method­olo­gies design­ers use helps me gen­er­ate cre­ative and inno­v­a­tive ideas. And I enjoyed being inspired by my co-worker and users dur­ing the design process.
  • UX fits more into my per­son­al­ity. I am used to being con­sid­er­ate. Besides, I love tech­nol­ogy, and always wish to help more peo­ple enjoy the con­ve­nience and pleasence brought by technology.
  • When I was study­ing Inter­na­tional Busi­ness, I found I am more inter­ested in the­o­ries and issues around human-beings, rather than man­age­r­ial principles.
  • Inter­na­tional Busi­ness study offers me great chance to expe­ri­ence dif­fer­ent cul­tures, and pre­pares me to be more cul­tural sen­si­tive and always open to new ideas.  Value sen­si­tive design is an increas­ingly impor­tant con­cept as our com­mu­ni­ties are becom­ing increas­ingly diversified.
  • Design is a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary field. I believe the soft-skills, critical-thinking styles and the knowl­edge of busi­ness world I devel­oped dur­ing under­grad­u­ate study can help me become a bet­ter designer.

Which one do you pre­fer, UX Research or UX design?

  • A com­bi­na­tion of crafts­man and researcher is the best option for me.
  • I enjoy doing hands-on design work. There is something satisfying about seeing your ideas through from sketch to live app or website. I especially enjoy getting feedback from people that something I’ve designed meets their needs and is easy to use. The highest praise is when someone calls a product I worked on ‘delightful’!
  • But my curios­ity towards the world and human-beings always moti­vates me to learn more through read­ing and researching.
