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 design and video work for nonprofit organizations. As a graphic design consultant at an organization called Plant With Purpose, I was responsible for branding two of their fundraising galas. Each event resulted in over $300,000 each in donations – more than any other gala from the past two decades in the organization!
My most recent work was done at Digium, Inc., a tech company that provides business communications solutions using open source telephony software. I worked on projects to update the graphic interface and workflow of one of their products, Switchvox Mobile App. I sketched mockups and wireframes in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and utilized A/B testing to develop the softphone application. I updated the interfaces to have the same look and feel as the latest iOS and Android styles. I collaborated with other UX designers and front-end developers to ensure the application is fresh and complete. I also worked on web applications using my basic knowledge of HTML/CSS.
I am seeking a UX/UI position in the San Francisco Bay Area. I would love to work with UX designers and front-end developers 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!
