Visual designer who loves CSS.
I specialize in interactive & responsive design
with accessibility in mind.
I have taken various paths on my journey.
I have gained experience in visual design since 2014, handled both physical and digital design including branding, campaign, books, magazines, EDM, web design, social media and so forth.
Since 2017, I wanted to pivot into a digital-driven product design. So I learnt web technologies, HTML, CSS and JavaScrip, especially I love CSS.
Nowadays, 👀 I'm actively looking for Product > UI > Visual design position.
I love learning new methods, tools and languages.
