I'm Vivian, a product designer currently building exciting machine learning experiences in fintech at Workday.
By partnering with business, product, and engineering, I lead cross-functional teams towards positive and measurable outcomes through human-centered design.
I'm also a firm believer in making time to step away from Figma and create "facetime" with real users. As a result, I use a combination of qualitative insights, quantitative data, and usage metrics to inform my overall design process.
Skills & Interests
I’m passionate about building products that surprise, delight, and inspire people through meaningful design rooted in business outcomes. I learn on the go and I've developed an array of creative skills from interaction to illustration, with key interests in visual and experience design.
With a belief that design is both simplicity and usability, I enjoy articulating my ideas, creating strategic partnerships with stakeholders, and establishing trust and accountability in the work that I do. I use a systematic approach to draw on my experience in design, business, and marketing to create solutions that are both effective and empowering.

As part of onboarding, I've led design-thinking workshops for 200+ new hires in product management, engineering, and sales.
As a mentor at Designlab, I've guided aspiring designers through 500+ project hours as part of the UX Academy program.
By cultivating core business skills, my goal is to shift design teams from a service to a highly strategic asset for the company.
