Who Am I?
Hi! I am Mingda.
I am a product designer who firmly believes these following principles:
Any product, regardless of its scale, needs a product strategy. Given limited business constraints, features should be implemented based on their level of impact, their costs, and the needs of key stakeholders and the most common segment of users.
Design decisions should always be data-driven (numbers!), no matter the size of the organization. This may not always be possible, but it should be prioritized at all times to ensure customer satisfaction and product success.
Designs as a final product should not simply created by the designer, but instead by a cross-functional team consisting of stakeholders from all facets of the organization: design, research, product, engineering, and business.
During my free time I enjoy weightlifting, singing, and sometimes writing and producing music. I also actively volunteer and help out in my community where and when I can, where I work to solve clients' problems in the real world.
What do otherS have to say about my work?
"I think it's safe to say this effort was the most significant and meaningful effort to re-imagine the booking and client management experience ever done at DaySmart.
The concepts demonstrated (yesterday) represent a great leap forward for our UX and provide a glimpse of our future. I'm really glad I got to see it, and very grateful to your team for what was obviously a concerted and thoughtful effort."
