A delightful and heartwarming design has the power to make changes. If someone asks me why I chose to become a designer, I can say that the world changes when a designer touches others’ hearts. I always try to look for what people want and what they struggle for, and that becomes a starting point to think about how to improve their lives. Every time I listen to the real story of people, their true needs inspire me with the greatest empathy.
Age and health became one of my design focuses. I consider a wide spectrum of generations and try to find their specific needs for healthier and richer lives. My childhood memory of living with my grand parents strongly affects how I think about older generations and inspires me to become a bridge to communicate across generations.
I am inquisitive about where the world is moving towards and how people will live with the changes. I, as a creative leader, always dig deep into the questions of mundane life to find a solution. I believe that a good design is not just pretty, but sculptured throughout the deep understanding and insights of what people want.
