My Story

I worked at a medical company related to the clinical study of medicine for 7 years. Through the work, I have experienced using medical web applications such as electric medical records and electric case reports. However, I felt inconvenienced using these web applications because they are too complex, and I worried about causing inefficiency and mistakes in busy medical settings due to the design. Thus, I decided to be a web designer and create simple and straightforward applications.

In a previous career, I was in charge of creating documents which make medical staff understand the procedures of clinical studies easily and improve performance and accuracy. I had deep communication and research with the medical staff with a thorough investigation of which information they needed, which was the appropriate shape, and where it should be located to create the material. With this experience, I realized that communication and research are essential in designing tools to improve productivity, and it does not have to be electronic devices.

These experiences are my based beliefs as a designer.


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
