Ruby Nie


Growing up, I had boundless fun doing two things: expressing my ideas through art which has trained my hands and eyes for aesthetics, and learning how to use the latest gadget my geek dad brought home which, developed my passion for technology. It seemed to be two incompatible interests until I discovered the field of product design.

“ Invent yourself and then reinvent yourself and stay out of the clutches of mediocrity.”

This quote by Charles Bukowski reflects my journey as an ever transforming designer and the development of my design vision. Today I am still the same artistic kid with a geeky dad who enjoys doing my two things. Except now I’ve earned a collection of knowledge and skills which enables me to professionally explore and create products/experiences at a macro level. I met my strongest passion when the spark of a product ecosystem or platform came through the process of trend analysis and brainstorming. I strive to design for the longevity of both the brand/organization and our society.
