Hello! I am Chen Ni. 

I am currently pursuing my Master degree in Interaction Design at Carnegie Mellon University. Before that, I was as an Interaction Designer at Tencent, and an Industrial Designer at a toy startup named Toyish.

Open Mind

I am originally from China. Eagerness to explore has made me travel to many places. Throughout the journey, one of the most important lessons I've learnt is to always keep an open mind. The quality empowers me to stay curious and keep learning.

Empathy

I am driven to design solutions that address user pain points and bring positive impact to people's life. I believe that empathy is the key to deeply understand user and business needs, which is the foundation for good and innovative design.

Hands-on

Having worked as an industrial designer for the past few years, I am always ready to get my hands dirty to quickly prototype and iterate. Working with hands is also a meditative process that brings me calmness.
