MY VISION
& INSIGHTS

Discover People's Mental Desires
Apply Psychological Strategies
Create Smart Product + UX Design

Hello! My name is Michael Ji, a UX designer, and an interaction design student at University of Washington, Seattle.
Four years ago, I switched from engineering to design. Since then, I've been interested in how people's instinctive wills and the accessibility of information can affect their choices and experience. So far, my designs have benefited so much from these. 
I love thinking and designing with challenges beyond the existing rules. Thus, I've been so interested in VR/AR and flexible wearable devices. Meanwhile, I've been photographing for three years. I love driving down towards an abstract destination with friends, stopping by anywhere that "worths" a stop, and waiting to capture the scene at a perfect moment.
