Hi there! My name is Derek Wong, and I am a visual designer with backgrounds in UX/UI, graphic design, and videography.
While pursuing my Visual Arts degree at UC San Diego, I provided freelance graphic design and video work for non-profit organizations. From there, I transitioned into visual UI work for a telecommunications software company. I collaborated with UX designers and front-end developers to update their mobile visual interfaces for iOS, Android, and PC.
My most recent design work was for HP’s line of OMEN Gaming desktops and notebooks. I’ve ran the whole gamut of the product development cycle from moodboards to in-depth style guides, wireframes to clickable prototypes, and user testing to design production. Designing for gamers is a challenge in itself, but with the right resources and mindset, I was able to design an interface that improved the customer experience.
I am seeking a UX/UI position in the San Francisco Bay Area. I would love to work with UX and product designers on mobile and desktop applications. I look forward to using my next opportunities to learn from such talented individuals and craft my skills as an artist and a creative developer.
Well, what are you waiting for? Let’s make the future bright together!
