Hi! I’m Jiyeon (Jenny)

I'm a designer with 10-years of experience since I've professionally started studying design in 2009. My passion for design started when I was a little kid— I grew up in a place where it was filled with my mom's textile design artworks, when I was 7, I used to create pixel art icons for my dad's computer desktop, and my favorite activity in middle school was to make custom graphic design cards for my friends using Adobe design software.

I've been enthusiastically carrying over my passion, moving from Seoul to New York where I did my master's studies in Design and Technology— now particularly interested in data visualization, computational arts, product UX/UI design. I want to be a designer who bridges the gap between engineering and design.

I'm currently working at Enigma, a data technology company near Flatiron district in Manhattan, as a Digital Designer focusing on information visualization and data product UI/UX design.

I always love to go to meet diverse people in the city, talking over similar interests in Data, UX, and Design.

Check out my ongoing activities!

 
 
 
 

Internship at Datorama

To get real-field experience in the area of business intelligence and data visualization, I interned at Datorama HQ, an innovative data analytics company creating real time marketing data analytics dashboards. Datorama helps marketers at thousands of leading companies connect all of their data sources together, whether it’s a handful or hundreds, to form a single source of truth for more efficient reporting, better decision making and total control over clients' marketing performance. I was in charge of material design, adding interactivity on Datorama's data analytics UI to improve the visual communication.

As a sole designer (intern) in sales team, I designed user interfaces of Datorama's automatic search, social, display performance dashboards with HTML,CSS and Javascript for clients to see their A/B testing data and key performance indicators at a glance. My previous academic background and experience in visual communication, marketing and user experience helped me develop the dashboards with a solid understanding of marketing terms and visual elements to interpret the data as well as enhancing user experience, aligning with strategic marketing goals.
