Hello, my name is Yeowon Lee.
I am a digital UI/UX designer with illustration and animation skills.
My passion for design has always motivated me to go further than others and challenge myself. I have strong work ethics and am always committed to meeting high standards on every piece I work on. I am unafraid to suggest new approaches to improve upon existing designs or trends. I love the sense of accomplishment when I meet a demanding deadline, or successfully deliver on a very complicated task.
Throughout my academic and professional careers, I have worked towards the goal of producing designs that will not only boost client business, but are also pleasing in an aesthetical sense. I am skilled not only in graphic design, but also in video editing and 2D animations, and have completed numerous commercial grade print projects.
As a digital UI UX designer, my design fundamentals are these three rules - make it useful, usable and then delightful. Using these three rules, firstly, I consider functions and purpose of the design to achieve its most important goal - making it useful. Once I have identified core functions and hierarchy of information, I begin designing the UI. With this working process, it becomes easier to workout a usable layout without leaving any important factors behind. It is always within my best interest to design complete user journey, to create easy and clean experience for users, putting functionality over delightfulness. Only when functionality has been met for the design, I add fun and smart interactions, colours and layouts to make the product delightful. These are my very corner stones in every project.
I am proficient in Adobe Creative Suite in both Window and Mac platform and have solid knowledge on Microsoft office suit as well. I have intermediate HTML and CSS skills that allows me to consider most feasible design solution within given time frame. I am a strong problem solver and I always work hard to think creatively in every situation.
I have extensive experience in working in complex and varied environments, involving a diverse group of people, and have led teams as a UX design lead, working with small and large teams extensively. I am a bright natured person with a positive and professional attitude. I also further developed my skills in time management and often had to juggle decision direction between business and personal.
On more personal note, I enjoy reading, watching animated movies and writing short stories. My favourite way of spending a Sunday afternoon would be reading a book or two with my cat lying on my lap. I am highly interested in Human Rights issues, and would actively engage in activities to support anti-discrimination projects of any sort.
