Skills & experience
Hi! I'm Irene, a user-centered design advocate and an artist who loves colour, storytelling, games and animation.
Coming from a background of architecture and design, I'm able to navigate between different levels of project complexity, and to design visual experiences in a wide range of scales. I moved to Vancouver to pursue my Master's degree in Digital Media, at the Centre for Digital Media.
My knowledge is used to provide critical interpretation of problem-spaces and to guide the appropriate use of visuals in a physical or digital environment: considering specific goals, restraints and human use.
I believe that design is much more than pushing pixels. I value a strong design rationale, and also the invisible traits of design: strategic thinking, structure & planning which serve as a foundation to achieve desired outcomes.
