Previously I graduated with a BA in Industrial Design from Jiangnan University, China. My background enable me to better understand the connection between the physical and the digital world, and easily bringing insights back to design. 

Who I am?

I am Yue Yuan, a 23 year old interaction and visual designer from China. Currently I’m in my first year of the Master’s degree in Interaction Design at the  Umeå Institute of Design, Sweden.




Now, I enjoy combining my research, interaction, product and visual design skills, and discovered a great passion in creating a charismatic and meaningful experiences through both digital and physical interactions.


Out of design, I am a passionate illustrator who started to learning drawing since 6 years old. The following are selections of my illustration work.
