Dianna Su

UX Designer

Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
Dianna Su is a wholly unremarkable child, except that she was always the runt of the class. However, what she lacked in size, she more than made up for in imagination.

There was nothing more wondrous, in her mind, then the joy of creating worlds. And thus, she started her dogged pursuit of all things design. Along the way, she took the liberty of dabbing in UX designs, interaction design, traditional art, digital paintings and photography to exercise the other aesthetic muscles.
