Adrian Lin

UX Designer

New York, NY, USA
I enjoy creating efficient, usable, and most importantly, memorable experiences in the apps I design and develop. As a web developer, I focus primarily on front-end development, and as a UX designer, I enjoy interaction design, information architecture, and usability testing.
