Hi there! My name is Emily Zhou, a UX designer and entrepreneur based out of San Francisco Bay Area. Over the past few years, I have been the core designer or only designer in multi-functional agile teams, taking full ownership of design, leading major redesigns as well as launching new features for high quality products with 4.9+ store rating, 8m MAU and great app store rankings. I have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and I went to Carnegie Mellon University to study design, and received my master’s degree there. Currently I am a product designer and also the co-founder of a start-up called DragonPlus.
When not designing, I love to create and build things. I create bowties, chokers, immersive experiences and games, installations, documentaries, and music. I’m also a writer on Medium, I like to share my experience creating design systems, using the tools, and helping the team grow.
