My name is Lynn. I am a UX/UI Designer and Developer living in Vancouver, Canada. I have 5 years of experience working with brands, designing websites and apps. Most recently, I have been involved with crafting digital strategies alongside directors and stakeholders.
Today I am working as an in-house Designer and Developer at Knowledge Network, British Columbia's Public Broadcaster. I have worked under brands such as BBC Kids, Knowledge Kids, and Knowledge Network. My work is driven by creating thoughtful yet beautiful experiences. I believe in a user-centric approach while balancing the needs of the business. I thrive by solving complex problems and flourish at a design challenge. I am highly detail-oriented and quite meticulous. Some describe me as passionate, but I think I'm just curious by nature. I feel very fortunate to be doing something I love and have grown up with. It's such a huge part of me and who I am.
I started designing and coding at the tender age of 8. As a kid, I was fascinated by the world wide web. I remember spending hours infront of the computer surfing the web and exploring new domains like Myspace and Geocities. That's where my curiosity took over and I taught myself how to use photoshop and code. I spent a lot of time perfecting my new hobby, creating little webpages and going into source codes. At that time, everyone knew a bit of HTML. So I was no special cookie. However, my friends noticed (my online wizardry) and shortly after, I started pumping designs out for other people. I graduated with a scholarship in design and continued my education in University, where I studied Information Architecture, User Interface Design, User Testing, Front-end and Back-end Developing.
I love design, not just for it’s own sake but for what it can do for people. Every project undertaken is approached intelligently, communicated creatively, and crafted with care. But most important every project is different. I believe doing the necessary research and having a discovery period even before the wireframes start. Balancing form and function is what I strive for.
