Hi! My name is Yan. I am a graduate of MA Multidisciplinary Innovation who is a sketcher, detailed thinker and professional planner. Currently, looking for employment opportunities in service and strategy design.
At UBD, I have been designing logos, visuals for websites and magazine advertisement etc. Also, I helped to conduct research and provide ideas for design directions. It has been great to learn about the visual presentation and the process of designing graphics/illustrations.
During this placement, I was able to learn from Danny, an independent industrial designer, and his daily duties at the studio. I took part in projects from start to finish and taken to factory visits. Thanks to this experience, I now have a better understanding of the procedures in designing and the management of product productions, which provided me with a better picture of how the product design industry works.
I have gained valuable skills to work in a group through many group projects I have done in this postgraduate degree. Throughout this degree, I have also learned to be conscious and reflective of all my design decisions. The most enjoyable part of this degree was to host workshops and meeting clients. I learned something new and helped them face the challenges in their business, which I found rewarding.
My undergraduate degree has allowed me to experience design in different fields with fulfilling solo and group projects; this included service, product and furniture design. During the four years degree, I have gained a basic understanding of many different design fields, and this will be carried forward to my professional career.
