I’m Edmund Zhang, and I explore future visions, craft new interactions and shape great products for people—through research, design and storytelling. 👁‍🗨



About

Edmund’s official job title is “Experience Designer”. But when you ask him what it is exactly that he designs, he often has a hard time explaining.

Hence, he prefers to call himself an “Everything Designer” instead. From the colors on your garments, daily electronic appliances, to how people mingle and make meaning—everything can be designed with more curiosity and optimism.

His approach is future-focused—thriving on research, strategy and collaboration. He ultimately sees the value of design in uncovering and activating opportunities in often-overlooked areas.

Hopefully, when you ask him again in a few years’ time, he looks forward to giving you a different answer yet again.
