a bit about me,

Hello hello, I’m Alice Niu, an intuitive passionate product designer with a background in graphic design and a hybrid IXD/VD toolkit. It is my dream to make conceptual ideas into real-life products as well as tell compelling stories through beautiful pixels. 

Graduated from California College of the Arts with a BFA in Graphic Design with distinction in 2020 and School of  Visual Arts with an MFA in Interaction Design in 2022. My two degrees have provided me with a great foundation of knowledge and skills. I always design with thinking at all layers, from concept and research to visual design and interactions. I’m a vigorous problem solver who tackles challenges head-on and treats obstacles as learning experiences; a people person with high energy and curiosity, and a self-starter who is creative, results-driven, human-centric, accurate, and unconventional.

Besides design, I'm a huge fan of fashion and super intrigued by its cultural and political components that drive diverse fashion trends.
