DesignAct Member Portrait, 轉轉影像(2016)
Hi, I'm Gu.
I am a passionate UX designer having deep understanding of design research techniques and web-based technical knowledge. With more than 3 years of design experiences, I am familiar with digital product design with contemporary techniques. Specifically, I worked on Machine-Learning-powered products including search and recommendation, and solved communication issues between the technology and users from both academic and design approach.
As a diligent designer, I tend to tackle long-term design projects with great self-discipline and collaboration between multi-disciplinary teams. Having experiences in research, design and development, I am confident I can not only deliver design requests, but also the enrich the design depth and culture of the team. My Resume (pdf)

As part of my graduation research, I collaborate with a Silicon-Valley-based company, BloomReach to identify the challenges of retailers when implementing AI-powered products. The project is not only ambitious that provides the rare qualitative data from the business context regarding the technology, but also comprehensive that addresses the gap of the management culture, working workflow and knowledge when implementing the complex, statistic-based AI technologies.
UX Design Intern
Jul 2018 – Nov 2018
My project was to refresh the navigation system of Bing News. Based on the literature review, I built a framework to evaluate the navigation of news-related competitors. Then, I did a comprehensive design exploration including styles, user behaviors and new features on both mobile and website platforms. In the end, two designs were selected with verification of two-way ANOVA test.
With the complete result, I received a 9/10 in the internship evaluation from my mentor.
Web Developer (Vendor)

Collaborating with a UI designer and project manager, I developed digital products. I constructed the front-end by latest tools like Gulp and middleman, and used highly-customized Wordpress to build the back-end. It provided me valuable experiences in collaborating with designers. It also helps me to identify a better approach to create scalable design guidelines and components.
