hey there!

I’m Chongsoo, and I’m a product designer currently based in Los Angeles. 🌴
My architectural background (see my previous portfolio!) helps me create great user-focused experiences and design solutions. I decided to make the transition into UX/UI design because I was seeking creative fulfillment and opportunities to be involved in more meaningful design. I’ve always looked for ways to create designs that spark a conversation, and I’m constantly applying the things I learned as an architectural designer into my work. I love designs that tell a story and I’m always motivated to find great solutions to the problems we face today.
‍
During the pandemic, I revisited illustrating and launched a successful social media presence - I started a small business and even created my own online illustration class! When I’m not designing or managing my shop, I enjoy gaming, hiking and car camping, exploring new cuisines, going to shows, and spoiling my mini Aussie. 🐶

If you have any questions or want to get to know me more, I’d love to chat! 💌
