Hi there! I’m Shirley

I am a digital designer and world traveler. I find joy in designing and creating, and I strive to produce useful and memorable experience for people through design. Prior to becoming a UI designer, I have worked and designed at a global award-winning architecture firm. In my spare time, you can find me dabbling in photography and making small models.
Currently, I am learning Japanese and reading the book Totto-Chan by Tetsuko Kuroyanagi.
If my outlook on design resonates with yours, don't hesitate to get in touch!
