Hello ~  I am Johnny Jiasheng Chen. 
I am an innovative Industrial & UX designer currently based in Chicago. 

For me, every designed object is

a convex ideological mirror, amplifying

its creators' minds and practices.

I have 3 years+ of experience in design innovation, human-centered design, and cross-disciplinary practice — proficiency in design integration, user research, and fabrication. My practice includes digital fabrication, commercial product design, graphic design, and crafts. Passionate about finding new possibilities to achieve design goals. 

Nowadays, the definition of “designers” evolves rapidly. To keep up with the changing world, improving multiple skills, reflecting on the purpose of design, and seeking new perspectives to tackle problems are things that matter to me.

In my viewpoint, a designer is a life planner who balances between dreams and reality. Who enables us to find suitable methods for the present condition, utilizing critical thinking, researching skills, artistic training, and good communication skills to cooperate with people in different fields.​

Welcome to inquiry.
