Bio

Jade Shyu is an award-winning UI/UX Designer who is passionate about transforming concepts into elegant, intuitive digital experiences. Analytical, yet creative, Jade provides a thorough design approach to help you tackle your most confounding challenges. From research to production, her work reflects curiosity, precision, and efficiency.

Jade’s first foray into design was in elementary school, when she used her nimble, yet steady, little hand to make pixel art on Paint. Flashing forward to those ephemeral high school days, taking a course in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator left a deep impression and forever cemented her curiosity for the infinite potential of design. During and after college, Jade lived and breathed online marketing and guerrilla marketing tactics, amassing an arsenal of knowledge that includes social media marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), pay per click (PPC), email marketing, and sales, among others. Since then, she’s had the honor of collaborating with startups, small businesses, and YouTube artists for both design and marketing projects. Jade resides in Los Angeles and is available to clients around the world.
