Yi Wang王怡

Is a Senior UX Designer now based in Santa Clara

I moved to the SF Bay Area in 2019 and started working for Google in Mountain View in August 2019. Before that, I worked at Baidu as a senior UX designer and design lead in Shanghai. In the memorable 6+ years at Baidu, I helped Baidu Input Method, Baidu Maps, Baidu Lifenote, and other mobile/web products create decent design solutions and win more users with a friendly experience. 

I love to share my design thoughts in different ways.

 

From 2012, I started to write articles to share my thoughts of design and life at my Blog and Zhihu(China's Medium), which influence thousands of followers now.

 

From 2017, I started to make presentations and communicate with other designers at public conferences, such as Speaker and Host of a workshop at ixDC 2017.

 

I also attended Adobe MAX 2017, as a presentation contributor of one session from Baidu.

​BTW, here is a podcast about my experience of moving to the Bay Area and continuing my design career. (Hopefully, you are able to understand Chinese:D)

Hometown 

I was born and raised in Zhenjiang, China, a beautiful town that is famous for the vinegar and Yangtze River Scenery.

Painting in Childhood

I met and discovered art when I was 10 years old, learned traditional Chinese painting, painting flowers, birds, animals, ancient people, and landscapes as a little child. In 2000, I host a Chinese traditional art exhibition named "Farewell to the Childhood" in Boxian Park of my hometown, as a present to myself for stepping into Middle School. Then I started to get in touch with sketching and painting still life.

During 7 years of study as an undergraduate and postgraduate, I mastered thoughts, methods of Industrial Design, and Interaction Design. Then I practiced what I learned in universities, worked as an industrial design intern at Midea(China's Top Home Appliance Company) and Chinese South Industrial Design Institute, as a UX design intern in iSar, Sina(China's Top SNS Company), and Baidu(China's Google).

I love to do yoga and keep this habit for a few years. I also like hiking. The most unforgettable experience is I have finished 50km walking in 8 hours a day with 2 friends which let me understand my unlimited potential. 

 

What I most like is traveling around for new experiences of culture and life. I keep recording moments through my iPhone and camera. You can browse them from my Instagram below.
