About

Driven by her passion for design, Jing-Wen has been exploring and crafting various design experiences since 2013. Her training began within Industrial Design Department at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), where she developed her skills in design thinking and user researches. During college years she actively joined several organizations and workshops, such as TEDxTainan, MIT Media Lab Future City Workshop and DesignAct, which expanded her knowledge and experiences beyond design field.
 

In 2016 Jing-Wen received a Government Scholarship of Taiwan (SPOSAD, Scholarship Program for Overseas Study in Arts and Design) to study at Weißensee Academy of Art Berlin (KHB, Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin) for a year, concentrating on product design. During the year in KHB, not only the technical training has helped deepen her professional abilities, but also the culture experiences have broadened her horizons.
 

Drawing inspiration from her travels and German design culture, Jing-Wen believes design is communicating, which between human and either products or services. She is a keen follower of the ten principles for good design, quote by Dieter Rams, and here below is one of her favorite quote from him.
 

“Good designers must always be avant-gardists, always one step ahead of the times. They should–and must–question everything generally thought to be obvious. They must have an intuition for people’s changing attitudes. For the reality in which they live, for their dreams, their desires, their worries, their needs, their living habits. They must also be able to assess realistically the opportunities and bounds of technology.” - Dieter Rams

About this site

This website is the first version of my personal self-coded website. Everything you see here was designed and hand-coded by myself using html and css without wordpress nor bootstrap. It is a responsive web design which optimized for desktops, tablets and smartphones. Though the code is not yet elegant, this really is a fulfilling journey for me to self-learn and practically create something in a digital world!:^)
