An education in visual communication started my design training. A passion for art and product design sparked my career path. I live a dual life as a product designer and an illustrator. 

My family named me Yuan(原), meaning “original”. They hoped I experience the world with a beginner's mind. This impacts my design process. I believe experience guides the process, not the solution. At my best, I discover context story, define visual language, and translate complex systems to easy-to-use product.
