Xintong (Shantelle) Liu
Hi there, I am Xintong Liu. I am a User Experience & User Interface Designer creating minimalist, user-centric, and pixel-perfect experiences to tell the story of a brand. I am currently working at Microsoft as a UX Visual Designer.
My unique background in journalism equips me with endless curiosity to ask the right questions revealing the “why” behind user behaviors. My four years of experience in visual design allow me to understand how to make a user experience functional while visually appealing. I always believe in evidence-based design, which is why I listen closely to users’ needs and frustrations and optimize designs for better interaction.
In previous professional endeavors, I have leveraged my design skills for a variety of companies in different industries, from start-ups to the United Nations Development Programme, from governmental agencies to higher education institutes. With a master’s degree in Digital Media at the University of Washington where my courses were primarily focused on UX design and visual communication, I have developed a solid foundation in human-centered design methods and processes. Driven by my passion for design, I’m still learning every single day to ensure I can deliver the most modern and effective solutions.
When I am not working on design, I enjoy traveling internationally, watching bunny videos, and exploring new cuisines in the kitchen.
