UX Guideline

NetDimensions Talent Suite

Since June 2012, I worked as a full time UX/UI designer and was in charge of the UI design and redesign work for NetDiemsnions core product Talent Suite.

To make this enterprise talent management system more easier to use, I worked to define the Usability Guideline to simplifiy this product who was 14 years old in 2013.

For new feature requirement, I dealed with the prototype and mockups and provided the html prototype and to ensure css ready for development.

Also needed to solve the meet the standard of W3C accessibility, and to define the usability guideline to make the UI elements work consistent in this huge system.

Elements Board Game

五行纸牌桌游 Elements Board Game

It is a board game I designed that inspired by the Chinese elements relationship map "Wu Xin"(五行图). I use pen and paper to do the mock up and explore game rules with colleagues and friends. After a simple rule shaped, I started the graphics design on the card image and the map. Feel so good when we have the printed cards in hand and have people together to enjoy the game.


News Community Prototype in AngularJS

News Community HTML Prototyping in AngularJS

Web Product News Community ( Chinese, Concept Prototype )

In the west, there are several web community such as Product hunt, hackerNews, designerNews that bring me valuable stuff that worth to catch up everyday. Though there are tens of thousands of technology websites in mainland China, most of them contains too much information that need me to figure out the valuable news myself.

Sometimes, I thought it is enough that the Chinese could visit the website in the west as well. However, when I heard that website like TheNextWeb is not available to visit in the mainland,a web trends digging community in Chinese may be necessary.

I am not sure how far will this idea goes. The concept is what can be seen as the prototype.

Prototype was built with Foundation, angularJS, bower, grunt, scss and WebStorm.


Netdicon icon-font Design

To make the icon more flexible, I redesigned all the course type icons in Illustrator and generated them into icon-font in fontCustom command line. In this way, it is able to resize or coloring the icons in CSS and make them easier to be changed in the skin. The vector shape also make it looks perfect on devices with retina display.

Lucky Draw

A simple machine that uses to draw for a prize.

The different part of this machine is that it support viewing the results on multiple machine at the same time. One of the application scenarios is to use for engineers team. It help engineer draw to randomly assign the tasks in a fair way. All the engineers no need to go to the meeting room to get the result. Sitting on the desk, you can control and monitor the process and get the result.It also supports control and real-time monitor through the mobile browser.
