About Me

Hello There

Hi! My name is Samuel.

I'm pursuing a career in the field of UI/UX Design because I'm deeply passionate about technology and how it profoundly changes our way of living.

The process of turning an idea into a viable product gives me great satisfaction. Being a self-starter, I’m highly motivated staying up-to-date with the latest technology, industry practice and design trends.

01. Bio

Journey to Design

I studied cultural and film theories at The University of Hong Kong. I took a gap year and worked in iTunes & App Store, Apple as a Cross-Content Intern during college and this valuable experience sparked my interest in digital products and web.

After my internship, I took on some freelance projects as well as volunteered for students and community organisations, acquiring various skill sets to be a hybrid designer.

I started an agency Playa with a partner in 2015, hoping to help small businesses, entrepreneurs and non-profits launch their projects and bridge the gap between project owners and end-users. We have launched dozens of websites and apps in Hong Kong with multiple recognitions.

Currently, I work as Principal Designer at Hyperair, a start-up that aims to reinvent travel experiences.
