Vivia Ziqi Liu


My name is Vivia Liu and I am a fusionist. I blend interaction, product design and technology to enhance each other and create a fluid and engaging experience.

With my internship at Samsung I found balance between better user experience and technology constraints by working closely with researchers, designers and engineers. At Mercedes Benz I learned how to apply their brand in evoking emotion and conveying product usability. Tackling challenges from Adobe, Dell, Jaguar/Land Rover and Intel enabled me to feel less afraid of looking beyond traditional metrics while deferring to user’s conscious needs.

I thrive in environments where I can collaborate with talents from different disciplines and leverage comprehensive approaches for the future. I hope to continue to blend and “fuse” my love for design and use it as the unifying vehicle to drive the best experience.
