HI THERE! IT'S ME,
A DIGITAL PRODUCT DESIGNER - UX/UI
NICE TO MEET YOU!

Jean
Xincong He

I am a "classical designer" at heart who values creativity, craftsmanship, and hard work. The throughline in all my work is clear communication with internal teams and external users and stakeholders to create a win-win-win product. I respect business values while empathizing (and capitalizing on) underserved markets, and design solutions with foresight to solve both today and tomorrow's problems.

I am an M-shaped digital product and brand experience designer with end-to-end hybrid design skills with a human-centered approach.

I do what's fun & needs to get done!
