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!

 
 
 
 

Enigma Hack Week 2019 - Company Footprint

For Enigma's internal Hack Week this year, we created this geo explorer that you can explore industry growth over a decade in bay area and look up company & restaurant info. Check out how we used MapBox API and company data! I learned a lot about our front-end and data engineering workflow! :)
