I'm an architect turned ux designer passionate about creating lovely experiences that make the world a better place.


About  Me

“Design creates stories, and stories create memorable experiences, and great experiences have this innate ability to change the way in which we view our world.” — Christian Saylor

Hi, I’m Lexi Yan. I am a user experience designer who’s constantly

a work in progress. I recently completed my Bachelor of Architecture from Carnegie Mellon University with minors in Human

Computer-Interaction, Media Design, and Physical Computing. 

Though architecture will always be one of my great loves,

I realized 65% into my degree that my real passion is designing wonderful experiences for people. Since then, I’ve been constantly iterating myself to be better, to put more good into the world. 

My dream job is one where I can constantly be improving my

design skills while creating a social impact. I've helped nonprofits

                                    ,                                        , and                                                to a plethora of issues ranging from crime to hunger to the foster care system. I’m constantly looking for the tools I need to be the change I want to see in the world.

In my free time, I like to explore how                      are

transformed with a little bit of tech, how                           

can be utilized to push me out of my comfort zone, and how

a                can create some delightful interactions.
