Hi, I'm YuTing Cheng.
Originally from Taiwan, I came to study in Cambridge when I was 14 and now a UK citizen. I'm a visual designer at heart, and would go the extra mile to produce designs of the highest quality. My creativity took me to many places, such as illustration, graphic design, print layout, branding and digital product design. I really enjoy solving problems and believe that great products come from a collaborative team.
Got 4 years of experience now working in digital agencies & startups. Specialised in UI, UX, visual and user-centric product design as well as branding and print. Spent a year at REVL as the lead Brand & Digital Product Designer, worked on the UI/UX of their events and dating apps (iOS & react), the website as well as building their life-style consumer brand. Previously worked on an award-winning teacher’s mobile app as a UX design lead, responsible for mapping the user on-boarding journey, creating wireframes and A/B tests. Spent 2 years as the lead UI/Visual designer at Arbor, worked in an agile team alongside front end developers & UX designer to build a design system and UI Style Guide for a complex B2B software.
I am used to taking ownership of my work and able to work across a wide range of design areas, from building a digital product, mobile apps, websites, marketing campaign through to print, layout and branding. Currently available for onsite freelance hire.
