I'm Yumeng

Professionally,

I’m currently a graduate student in the MFA Interaction Design program at School of Visual Arts. Previously I’m a UX and Product designer in high growth start-ups. I also have a background in Communications, which allows me to think through human behavior, solving complicated problems with simple and inventive solutions.

Personally,

I'm a street photography enthusiast and hot-pot lover. I’m a person who is contradictory sometimes. I like to think independently and enjoy staying alone, however, I have made friends with people from various backgrounds and ages. I have a clear-cut on love and hate, but also appreciate the complexity of things and never judge them by right or wrong. I'm fascinated by the art of expression in all kinds of ways, such as singing, broadcasting and performing. I'm previously an anchor in a radio station in China, and now, I like to use photography to express how I look at this world. 

I believe the value of being alive is to live in the moment because the maximum value of life is not the past either the future, it is the every very second people experience. I enjoy designing experiences that simplify and bring more delight into every moment of people's lives.

Forkcast

Forkcast is a personalized food ordering app that learns what people like, and finds what people love. As the main UX designer at forkcast, I focus on simplifying diners’ way to make decision for food. I aim to solve the problem that haven’t been solved by other food ordering softwares and provide diners a more delight and simpler way in food ordering experience.

Chase Farro

This is a client project I’ve done in the MFA program in Interaction Design at School of Visual Arts. I worked with two teammates on the challenge to design a banking application for JPMorgan Chase. Chase Digital sought to discover and serve the needs of unbanked Millennials whose behaviors defy historic banking use cases. Our solution won the 2017 Top Solution Award, SVA IXD.

Shock Wave War

Shock Wave War is a hand gesture interactive game made by Arduino. This is my solo project for the class “Physical Computing” at School of Visual Arts. The concept for doing this is to bring the old-fashioned class-break game to the digital world.

Nike Golf Swing

Golfers seek affordable self coaching tools to improve their golf swing. With the advent of the Apple Watch, and its built in motion sensors, our team saw an opportunity to develop an app that could turn the Apple Watch into a digital coach to monitor and send feedback to golfers to improve their swing.

Vocativ AMA

AMA (ask me anything) is a Q&A platform that Vocativ wants to build to create a real-time experience with more potential for interplay between users and staff, from surfacing more voices, to delivering questions and comments in real-time, to making use of multimedia, to ongoing discussion through social channels.

 

Yelp Itinerary

This is a virtual project I did at General Assembly. The duration for this project was 2 weeks and I was in a team of three. Our objective was to increase user engagement and appeal to travelers by allowing them to plan their itinerary based on their search on Yelp.
