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!

 
 
 
 

Design Intelligence Conference 2016

I attended Design Intelligence Conference 2016 organized by MS Strategic Design and Management in Parsons Design School of Design.

I've always interested in the intersection between design and management, and it was a great opportunity to be aware of the role of design in building strong business models. I felt much of enterprising spirit at the conference by looking at new startup business platform, listening to keynote speech by many enterprisers. I was much inspired by designers specialized in technology, futures, sustainability and their implication for the future.
