Hello

I’m nana.
Visual designer who loves CSS.
I specialize in interactive & responsive design
with accessibility in mind.

UI/UX | Interaction Design | Design Research | Rapid Prototyping | Design system | Branding | Printing

I have taken various paths on my journey.

I have gained experience in visual design over the last 5 years. During this time, handled both physical and digital design including branding, campaign, books, magazines, EDM, web design, social media and so forth.

2 years ago, I wanted to pivot into a digital-driven product design. So I learnt web technologies, HTML, CSS and JavaScrip, especially I love CSS.

Nowadays, 👀 I'm actively looking for UI / Visual design position.

I love learning new methods, tools and languages.
