BEST FRIEND STUDIO | Founder, Researcher, Designer

About: I started as a Graphic Designer concerned with pixel-perfect typography and web design. However, as I started to consult with clients I kept feeling like better solutions existed beyond the pixels. So, I studied the social science behind design (and got to study in the UK!). Surprisingly, the effectiveness of my design solutions depended on how I communicated. If the flow, logic, and intent of the design isn’t clear, it doesn’t matter how perfect the design is.

Nowadays, I have branched off from design to focus on computer-mediated communication. I’m currently investigating if and how user interface and user experience (UI/UX) of internet-based communication technologies, e.g. social media platforms, impacts trust between: long-distance friends; job applicants and recruiters; clients and businesses. For fun, I draw, watch anime and study Korean.
