About Me
My name is Yining, and I'm from Shandong, China (the “belly” part of the chicken on the map, in case you're wondering).
I began my journey as a designer in college, majoring in Industrial Design. I developed a strong interest in the design process and believed in its power to solve critical, systematic problems for users, businesses, and companies. This passion led me to further explore the field in graduate school, where I focused on creating digital solutions using a user-centered process and a holistic vision.
Currently, I work as a User Experience Designer at the SAP AppHaus. My typical day involves working on cool customer projects from start to finish, following a human-centered approach. I create design prototypes using the SAP Fiori design system, collaborate with cross-functional teams to ship proof-of-concepts, and develop branding materials to introduce our team to a wider audience. I take pride in the design approach our team follows and advocates for, and I enjoy the challenges that come with tackling a variety of tasks.
As a designer, my next goal is to gain more hands-on Product Design experience, focusing on delivering exciting and delightful features for users and contributing to a company's product vision. I am excited about the opportunity to connect with you regarding future possibilities!
