I have been pursuing my career as a designer for 9 years. I recently earned my master's degree in Design and Technology from Parsons School of Design in New York City, and before, I double-majored in Visual Media Design and Public Relations & Advertising in Seoul, Korea. I'm specialized in UX/UI design for data-driven applications and dashboards, trying to find design solutions for complex systems. I'm a well-rounded designer who has deeper understandings in design, technology and business.

Internship at Datorama

To get real-field experience in the area of business intelligence and data visualization, I interned at Datorama HQ, an innovative data analytics company creating real time marketing data analytics dashboards. Datorama helps marketers at thousands of leading companies connect all of their data sources together, whether it’s a handful or hundreds, to form a single source of truth for more efficient reporting, better decision making and total control over clients' marketing performance. I was in charge of material design, adding interactivity on Datorama's data analytics UI to improve the visual communication.

As a sole designer (intern) in sales team, I designed user interfaces of Datorama's automatic search, social, display performance dashboards with HTML,CSS and Javascript for clients to see their A/B testing data and key performance indicators at a glance. My previous academic background and experience in visual communication, marketing and user experience helped me develop the dashboards with a solid understanding of marketing terms and visual elements to interpret the data as well as enhancing user experience, aligning with strategic marketing goals.
