Elim Pan


Hi. I'm Elim Pan, I'm an explorer of people. I create defining experiences inspired by people, culture, and travel. I spent half my childhood in Taiwan, exploring cities to nature, bustling markets to hidden alleyways with my backpack and my bike. I could always find an object, a person, a mood, or an interaction that would ignite my curiosity and fuel the direction of where to go and what to do next. These encounters are the key to crafting an entire experience.

As a designer, I am always asking why, redefining the scope and exploring the possibilities of what-if. By understanding people and their lifestyle, I discover insights that guide the design journey. From there I iterate concepts, clarify the story and start the path to refinement. I want people to have an experience that resonates deeply, one that they feel was crafted just for them. Experiences shape who we are and I want to create these defining experiences.
