Hi, I am Zhiyuan!

As a design student with a cross-cultural background between China and the Netherlands, I constantly reach out to experience cultural and sub-cultural differences between people, and further reflect on how these variances affect people’s communication approaches.

Technologies advance in an effort to bridge people closer, connecting whenever possible. However, do people truly feel the connectiveness among each other? How do I as a designer, when experiencing these rapid updates, propose what is actually beneficial for a societal transformation?

I believe, and also work in a continuous experiencing, reflecting and designing process throughout my study and extra curriculum. These practices enable me with following core competencies:

Cross-cultural design / Experience design / Design thinking / Experience prototyping.
