HEY YO! 你好👋

I am a Shanghai-based UI designer currently working at Reign Design and freelancing for creative industry start-ups. I am passionate about modern visual design across print and digital media. 

I have designed interfaces and brochures, created branding for Chinese startups and collaborated with big companies like BMW, Hyperloop One and Phillips. 

I strive to make sure that systems, interfaces, language, and graphics are human-friendly, aesthetically pleasing, clear, on-brand and usable ― with a touch of mellow smoothness.   

When I am not forgetting to group my sketch layers, forgetting water plants in the office, I am also showing up for work on time every day (so annoying). I enjoy never being satisfied with my deign work and always aiming to learn new things.  

Some Random facts about me 😉

I left school only one year ago

“Nicole, you’re the only Chinese girl I’ve met that doesn’t run away from the sunshine in the summer.” 

I enjoy making magazine collages

Bauhaus is just so-so compared to Weimar's sky.

I make sure to travel to the beach at least once a year.

I‘d love to hear from you
