Hi! I'm Tina.
I'm a Product Designer at Envoy. I recently graduated from UC Berkeley with degrees in Economics and Psychology.
I'm passionate about behavior-centered design that is sensitive to quirks that make us human. I'm particularly fascinated by anticipatory design.I aspire to craft thoughtful solutions to people's problems that also inject joy into their lives.
I got into design at age 6 when I redesigned outfits for the protagonists in Sailor Moon. Since then, I found an all-consuming love of all things visual.
An interest in behavioral economics and human irrationality opened my eyes to how good design and information architecture could help take care of people. The marriage of behavioral economics with my love of the visual gave rise to a passion for product design. I hope to create considerate, empathetic products that have the user’s best interests at heart and cut through cognitive clutter to build products that move individuals closer to their goals.
Outside of design, I have an overwhelming passion for food and fashion. I spend a lot of time reading food blogs (Lady and Pups is my current favorite) and finding tasty food (with and without Yelp). I enjoy reading fashion show reviews and sometimes moonlight as a fashion designer. I try to make time to read, draw, and watch flower arranging videos. I'm also really invested in caffeinated beverages and the Freakonomics Podcast.
Currently searching for a perfect, no-spill teapot.
💬 Say hi! I'm always happy to chat.
