A little bit about me

I'm Tiffany,

A digital designer based in New York City🗽.

Born in Chicago and raised in Seoul, Korea.
Landed in New York to study design at Parsons.




Background
Growing up with an arctic scientist/marine geologist grandfather who spent years traveling end points of the earth 🌎, exploration has been second nature to me. Interested in human behaviors and visual representations of cultures, I initially studied fashion design to learn about form and function.




Education
I transitioned to study Communication Design at Parsons to learn about visual communication, computer graphics and interaction design.
Minored in Creative Entrepreneurship to learn strategic/design thinking and to add a business perspective in approaching design. Did a semester abroad in Paris, expanded my knowledge in history, global marketing, ways of living, and humans in general!




Experience
📍Currently participating in Cornell Tech x Parsons Product Studio.
Collaborating with multidisciplinary industry experts including MBA, CS, Law students. Learning the nature of building a startup.

→ Interned at Wix, as a Web Designer.

→ Worked at Zara as a Sales Associate.

→ Taught Art and Design to high school students in Seoul.




About me
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 web and mobile experiences that minimizes 
digital burnout to successfully navigate through this Covid / Fourth Industrial Revolution era.




Interesting fact
Unlike most people,
I’ve traveled the most in 2020 (before travel restrictions)
and have experienced lockdown/quarantine
in 4 different countries during Covid 🙃
