I push through limits and boundaries
with tremendous curiosity.
Hi, I'm Jo
Female, Gemini, born in 1993.
跨領域的設計狂熱者，對設計產出有高度堅持，相信自律與效率帶來自由。大學期間透過大量的國際設計工作營，參與的設計面向包括工藝、產品、平面視覺、互動媒體、建築空間、服裝、設計思考與應用方法。透過一次次的跨域實作累加以及跨文化團隊的衝擊，逐漸熟悉如何在高壓多變的環境下配合團隊成員的強項特性適時補強其不足之處，帶領團隊面對不同課題皆能在有限時間內產出高品質設計的系統與方法。2019 年加入 AppWorks School iOS Class，在四個月的扎實訓練後成為一名設計與技術能力兼具的 Designer + Developer，致力於成為實務上優秀的 Design Technologist。
台灣數位產品設計內容社群 AAPD 的團隊成員之一，負責為團隊內部舉辦 Design Workshop、匯集團隊共識。2017年在AJA大予設計七個月的全職實習期間，從趨勢研究、用戶訪談、UX解法轉化、Branding策略提案、UI設計落實到最後的測試驗證，在各個專案之間走完沒有服務斷點的完整設計流程。參與過敏捷設計的團隊，在靈活小編制的團隊裡透過反覆驗證、快速迭代創造每個任務的最佳體驗；也是深入型研究案的成員，將用戶論點打散再聚合，匯集出紮實的insight；熟用眼動儀與任務流程進行產品測試；舉辦設計思考工作坊，根據階段目標嚴謹設計活動環節。2017年末繼續未完成的大學學業，2018年6月於實踐大學工業產品設計系畢業。
閒暇之餘喜歡在街頭漫遊做城市觀察的影像紀錄，用不同角度切入尋常場景。對語言學習抱有熱忱，英語流利，日語、法語學習中。曾學過手語，成為開發者後從 Swift 開始，希望練就寫得一把流利程式語言的能力。
