I’m nana.
          Product designer who loves CSS magic 🔮
I specialise in interactive & responsive design
with accessibility in mind.

UI/UX | Interaction Design | Design Research | Rapid Prototyping | Design system | Branding

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 position.
