Hey! I’m Ryan, a product designer (currently @ Gopuff) that loves designing for people, products, and the people that build those products.
Basically, I make cool rectangles.
Here are some rectangles I'm passionate about ↓
Building a mobile design system across React, iOS, and Android complete with design tokens and documentation.
Reach out for the password!
Speculative project trying to reinvent product onboarding for a new user group.
Testing out if exclusive branding and adding AR to streaming can make the Winter Olympics more interesting.
Coding digital flowers that incorporate Perlin noise randomness.
Feeding traditional Japanese joinery through modern stochastic algorithms to build new structures.
Writing about product design, half-baked opinions, and other miscellaneous musings.
Growing up as a Taiwanese-American kid in Hamburg, my German was pretty bad. I had to find ways to interact with others without language, typically in the form of wild hand gestures.
As a former architect turned product designer, my skillset for creating and communicating great design is constantly evolving. I like to think I've grown past speaking in hand gestures... somewhat ✌️. These days, I connect with people by working on ideas informed by function, influenced by diverse thinking, and focused on the end user.
On the side, I'm probably:
🍜 Finding hidden NYC Chinatown spots and forgetting to bring enough cash
⌨️ Debating if I should build another mechanical keyboard
🎮 Slowly melting into my gaming chair as I grind in Valorant and TFT
The world's a small place, say hi ~
