Ruby Wu, Product Designer

Ruby Wu is a synergistic designer who unites design with practicality, bringing people and projects together effortlessly.

I'm Ruby Wu, a UI/UX designer fueled by the desire to bridge people and technology. With roots in Taipei and honing my craft at Carnegie Mellon's Design School, I specialize in AI, VR/AR, and human-computer interaction.

Sociology and Public Finance shaped my understanding of people and systems, steering me towards designing with a human touch. I thrive on creating solutions that are user-friendly and forward-thinking, blending design and tech to improve everyday interactions.

My work spans VR/AR systems, digital rentals, and property platforms. With skills in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python, and C# for Unity, I craft experiences that are not only functional but also engaging.

 

Driven by the potential of design to connect and elevate, I'm on the lookout for opportunities to innovate within the tech landscape. Currently, I’m actively looking for 2024 full-time position.

MY VALUES

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.

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.

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.
