I'm Ruby Wu, an experienced UI/UX Designer from Taipei, Taiwan, with over 3 years of hands-on product design expertise. Currently, I am elevating my skills at Carnegie Mellon University's renowned Design School, focusing on AI, VR/AR, and human-computer interaction research.
My background in Sociology with a minor in Public Finance ignited my interest in human behavior and social structures. However, my passion lies in crafting user-centric and sustainable solutions, propelling me into the dynamic realm of design, technology, and human interaction.
I am particularly drawn to futuristic, clear, and immersive designs that enhance user experiences. As I delve deeper into AI and human-computer interaction research, I aim to create innovative solutions that merge cutting-edge technology with seamless user interactions.
I am looking forward to connecting and exploring collaborations in the exciting world of technology and design.
1. Empower through connections
My passion for product design lies in empowering others to solve real-world challenges and fostering meaningful connections along the way. Crafting narratives and shaping experiences is where I find true happiness in my journey as a product designer.
2. Embrace the unknown
Embracing the unknown is my superpower. Acknowledging that there is always more to learn, I humbly seek opportunities for growth and never let ego hinder my quest for knowledge and improvement. At every step, I am open to seeking the help I need to maximize my potential.
3. Create values
"Value-first" is my guiding principle as a designer. Understanding that our purpose is to bring value to products, businesses, and users, I prioritize creating tangible value in every design decision I make. This approach ensures the positive impact of my work and drives successful outcomes.
