ABOUT ME

Polly Yang, Product Designer in San Francisco, CA

I'll confess: I enjoy bringing positive energy and a sense of professional playfulness to my work.

Hello again! My name is Polly Yang, and I am a bilingual product designer, lifelong learner, marathon runner, world explorer, aspiring chef, entrepreneur, and adventurous person. 🎢


With profound empathy gained from working in advertising, integrated marketing, and education, I solve business problems by creating ethical, useful, and cost-effective digital solutions to bridge between technologies and users.

About Me

Before moving to the US, I had worked in advertising and integrated marketing for about five years across marketing and sales teams. As an enthusiastic team player and consumer advocate, I bridged multiple brands and target audiences by integrating suitable media platforms and messages. During that time, also collaborated with in-house and freelancing designers, artists, and art directors closely and effectively to create and implement digital marketing campaigns. My communication and project management skills contributed significantly to my success; however, I wished my job itself was more creativity-related.

 

A few years ago, I decided to move to California to try a different lifestyle. Through my time working at an art and design university, I discovered UX/UI design, which offers me the possibility of one-stop-shopping model in combining my communication, time and project management, problem-solving skills, and creativity. In early 2021, after a year of self-exploring and taking individual classes at university, I decided to attend DesignLab Bootcamp to study UX design more structurally. Now here I am, embracing the new chapter of my career and looking for exciting opportunities. 🔮
