My name is Tsai-Shan Yang; I was born in 1984 in Taiwan, I have studied and got my MFA degree of Web Design & New Media from Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I also have my background of bachelor's degree in computer communication and engineering, where I have learned more about computer programming and communication skill. Although the area that I have studied in is more about hardware and software, but I am also founded of user behavior and experience. I haven specialized myself in the area of User Experience, Digital Imaging, Website Design, Motion Graphic, and Visual Design. Through training, I have realized the interactions between user and product and also enhance my ability to the environment.
There are several important projects in my learning period. First of all, my graduation project in bachelor’s degree was called "Interactive Chinese Learning Environment," for which I was the team leader. I was responsible for delegating tasks to other team members. I worked with Flash and MAYA, learned to draw sets and worked in coordination with many others. Teamwork demands that you share your progress with others and support each other during production.
The second major project is my graduate thesis project in Web Design & New Media is a social networking website about reusing. In this website, we encourage user to upload their brand new ideas about how to reuse their household items or any product they want to give them a new life. User can find items by the search function and there are large image with steps of how to make the items to helps user to make the craft by oneself. This social networking website offer user a good environment to share their idea and also do their responsibility to this environment by reusing. The purpose of doing the website by using drupal is that CMS is the system which let user have a good space to upload and share to other people. Moreover, user can exchange their idea and share to any public social networking such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ etc. In this project, I deeply understood user interaction when one surfs the website and figured out what is good for user. User interface design is the primary key point to achieve a professional website for user.
Thirdly, when I was intern in Mediatrope interactive studio, where I was responsible of assist the project – Noguchi Museum. During cooperate with other coworker in studio; I strongly understand teamwork is really important. Researching on details can help the work go smoothly. I have also learned the importance of communication, coordination, and cooperation.
In a personal aspect, I’ve always kept myself in a positive way to learn everything. Learning new things won’t scare me to escape for carrier; I know the world change in every second. Being a good user interface designer, listening to user’s need is really important. I am expecting to have the chance in being the bridge between user and design, such as designing user interface, analyzing the user needs, or improving the structure of software/hardware. Thank you for reading my resume and knowing about me.
I am looking forward to hear the response from your company. Read Less
