Hi I'm Joanne . Born and raised in Malaysia, I grew up drawing and painting colourful things. Inspiration is eveywhere: the colourful saris wear by Indian women, tropical fishes swimming in the sea, amazing cuisines and street eats, wonderful seasons of cultural celebrations... Malaysia is a multicultural place where my love for diversity and openess has somehow shape my ambition of becoming a designer. I was exposed to the design world studying artworks of Paul Rand, Massimo Vignelli, Paula Scher, Stefan Sagmeister, Vince Frost and the likes during my college years. Graduated with scholarships, my interests in design grew wider and further towards hollistic design . I then packed my bags to go see and explore the world. After 3 years living in Sydney, Australia, and then graduated from bachelor studies in Finland, I am currently working as UI/UX Designer in Stockholm. I lead the design of web and app based user interfaces and visual assets for several projects, created style guides and design system working together with a scrum team of UX designers, frontend developers, product owners and managing business stakeholders.

I am always on the run, in the search of solving (creative and complex) problems with meaningful work, beautiful ideas , and functional design. When I don't think about design, I am mostly spending time with my little baby and my husband While being a new parent, I still find time to learn a new language , discover new ideas, visit natures and museums, observe cultural things and people around me, take pictures , and cook in the kitchen .

Do get in touch for creative side projects, design positions, cooking tips, or sharing traveling experience
