My name is Jessica Fang. I am a UX designer who desires to help guarantee a consistent user experience across the production chain by designing adaptive and easy-to-maintain layouts. My goal is to enhance the functionality and usability of platforms by developing user personas and scenarios for the target audience.
I am a recent graduate from the University of Toronto double-majoring in Psychology and Contemporary Communications (CCIT). The CCIT major is a joint program with Sheridan College where I was introduced to Web Design and Graphic Design. I was fascinated by how designs can change the way people lived, behaved, and think.
From there on, I took more diverse courses in digital design such as universal, accessibility, environmental, and inclusive design. Then I found my true passion in accessible design for people with a disability and the elderly demographic. I believe a design is successful when all people can use it despite its uniqueness.
Traveling is one of my biggest motivation and inspiration sources. Visiting different countries allowed me to experience and learn about diverse cultures and perspectives. It also helps me to become better at empathizing with my users during the design process. After all, user experience design is all about discovering and resonating with the users’ needs and goals!
