Hi 👋 I'm Tiffany,

A multidisciplinary designer based in New York City🗽 with a passion about visual systems, user experience, and digital services. I focus on conveying both human and business needs into design with clarity and sophistication.

Born in the suburbs of Chicago and raised in Seoul, I landed in New York to pursue design. I will be graduating from Parsons School of Design in May 2021, with a BFA in Communication Design and Minor in Creative Entrepreneurship where I collaboratively worked across disciplines using visual communication, motion graphics, interaction, experience, and product design. By minoring in Creative Entrepreneurship, I gained a business perspective in approaching design by learning financial, strategic and design thinking methods. I did a semester abroad in Paris 🥐 where I expanded my knowledge in global marketing, different ways of living, and humans in general!

I am currently participating in Cornell Tech x Parsons Product + Startup Studio, learning the nature of building a startup by collaborating with multidisciplinary team including MBA, CS, and Law students. I previously interned at Wix, as a Web Designer, worked at Zara as a Sales Associate, and taught Art and Design to high school students in Seoul.

Life before Design
Growing up with an arctic marine scientist grandfather who spent years traveling the end points of the earth 🌎, exploration has been second nature to me. I initially studied classical painting 👩🏻‍🎨 and fashion design 🪡 to learn about the fundamentals of form and function and visual representation of concepts based on history.

As a person
1. I’m an Extroverted Introvert.
Love working with people and meeting new people but need a good balance with alone time.

2. Curiosity and discomfort are my biggest inspirations.
Passionate in creating seamless design systems that makes people’s lives easier.

3. My current interest is in designing gratifying digital experiences. Minimize 
digital burnout and create digital wellbeing to successfully navigate through the Covid / Fourth Industrial Revolution era.

Interesting fact
Unlike most people, I’ve traveled the most in 2020! I have experienced lockdown/quarantine in 4 different countries, US, UK, France, South Korea, during Covid 🙃
