About me
Hey, it's Mai! UI/ UX designer exploring and presenting the social impacts of technology and culture through user-centred design. I graduated First Class Honours (BA)information and interface design (User experience design) at the University of the Arts, London. My background in user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) design has encouraged me to think critically of design and produce projects that are meaningful to users. I have designed, prototyped and coded responsive websites, apps and immersive experiences. I have been interviewed on BBC Radio Oxford, raised thousands of pounds for charity, created an AR Facebook filter tried on by Naomi Campbell, helped in a UX study for Google, went to an immersive technologies summer school in AR/VR in Oxford university and in 2019 exhibited in the London design festival & Copeland gallery too.
