Hi,
I’M Zhouyang Lu

I'm a UI/UX and visual designer in Toronto with extensive experience in interface design, interaction design and front-end development. I am innovative and proactive in developing elegant, functional and ground-breaking website and app designs for the demand side. I possess project management capabilities, team leadership experience and independent problem-solving skills. I am also highly organized when multitasking, and I have expertise in arranging research for various products, enhancing artistic expression within a design and validating code. I am a logical and results-oriented designer, technically savvy and analytical when resolving issues.

UI/UX design lies at the intersection of my two backgrounds: visual design and digital development. Excessive creativity can greatly increase development costs, but I am able to control the balance between the two and bring customers a user-friendly experience and distinctive visual effects. I am committed to building and optimizing user-centric applications for customers with various business goals. I find it important to be smart and creative when crafting effective websites, apps and platforms to drive competitive advantage and revenue growth.

I am currently a UI/UX designer at Bybit. I graduated with a postgraduate degree in Digital Media Arts from York University, specializing in Human-Computer Interaction. In my spare time, I actively create pieces of artwork and exhibit them at DesignTO, FACTT, IEEE VIS and other major exhibitions. I also create digital artwork, which is published on Raible, and I have become an NFT creator.
