User surveys and interviews

Always start with the user feedbacks, surveys and interviews to create user-centered design system. It was my first time conducting interviews and talking about the pain points on the products.

Embrace Ambiguity

Move forward without knowing all the answers. Don’t wait for permission, always be consciously curious and proceed forward with the best intentions. Keep thinking and pushing new ideas.

Visual Design

I learned about the visual design basics and helped them with icons and logos for their products. I plan to get more experience in it and create some more projcts.
