Hello, my name is

Kaishin Chu

I help businesses design and build great experiences, inside out.

ABOUT

ME

I began my career as a Product Designer and Developer within the apparel manufacturing industry. While I excelled in designing products and managing the development of them, I recognised that there was a need to assist the overall structure and processes of the companies I’ve worked for, in order to allow for the products to be experienced as we envisioned them to be used, as well as bettering the service experience for customers on all channels of interaction with the company.

I started to do user research and shadowing in order facilitate co-creative strategies in improving the in-house information and product life cycle systems (the back-end), as well as the client (retail buyers) and final end-use customer experience (the front-end).

It was not until a few years ago that I discovered that what I offered outside of product design was a line of work all on its own, known as Experience Design or Service Design, and it is a passion of mine.

RESUME

INDUSTRIAL BRAND

EXPERIENCE DESIGN CONSULTANT

I was brought onto a project where I could lend my expertise on apparel product design & development processes while collaborating with the team on providing experience design and strategy to help determine their client's needs and provide best possible solutions.

I was able to provide valuable deep insights which helped to validate wants versus actual needs and point out new opportunities for improvement.

As a team, we are now in the midsts of making recommendations in co-creation of a new brief to help map out the needs of all users (staff & management), along with the touch points that will need to be covered in order to build a sustainable and greater experience.

Tasks Performed: user research
, user interviews, data gathering, data analysis and synthesising, validation and insight mapping, experience mapping, and process consulting.

LANGARA COLLEGE

EXPERIENCE DESIGN

Being always curious and wanting to learn, I took an Experience Design class to refresh my knowledge and skills, while learning more about experience design for technologies (UX). It was a great experience in validating my skill set and seeing the parallels in various design methodologies, and how I could integrate the new learnings into my existing practice and vice versa.

During my studies at Kwantlen, I excelled in designing and producing technically challenging features, pushing my own boundaries in design and construction methods. Beyond studies, I worked as the student assistant to the program, as well as volunteered as a choreographer for our fashion shows.
