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.
“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.
I enjoy making a lot of stuff. Some of the stuff I've made are physical spaces transformed by tech, gadgets that can push me out of my comfort zone, and code that can create some delightful interactions.
Let’s connect and grab a coffee!
My dream job is one where I can constantly be improving my design skills while creating a social impact. I have already done work altering the built environment, designing learning experiences, helping nonprofits tackle poverty, and proposing community solutions 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.
