My name is Lange Ye. I grew up in China, am currently doing Information & Interface Design degree at the University of the Arts London.
What am I doing?
I am in my placement year (2017/18) to do internships in the design industry.
Now I am working with btrfly.net as a UI/UX Designer. Btrfly is a startup company founded in Canada developing a travel mobile app. As the only design person in the team, I have the opportunity to suggest changes to the design and functions of the app, as well as to contribute to high-level strategic decisions.
Previously I completed a collaborative project with Royal Academy of Music for their Summer Piano Festival 2017. Our multimedia performance won recognition of Joanna MacGregor, the Head of Piano in RAM, who then recommended me to do a commissioned work for Dartington International Summer School & Festival.
I am looking for new intern opportunities in 2018. Please feel free to contact me if there is any challenge available.
(I will be in China from Jan to Feb for the 2018 Chinese New Year though.)
Why information & interface design?
I saw the gap between technology and design when studying computing science
and my mother keeps complaining about how difficult it is to use a new device, so in 2015 summer I attended this course. My ultimate goal is to create designs that can work beyond language barriers.
This blog is used for notes and thoughts as required by the course.
I am also adding projects done at LCC so far slowly…

More about me…
I like drawing, cooking, solving problems, interested in psychology and Chinese metaphysics.
There is a Flash online portfolio I made in 2009. In just a few years time, it already shows the difference between screen resolutions. It used to fill a Mac screen but now became a square in the middle. In 10 or 20 years time, it may look ridiculous. I think it would be better to leave it as it is and never update it again.
