About Jay Liu
Why this site?
This (messy) site aims to bring the many ideas in my head about interfaces, interactions, and design methods, so I could continue to refine them. It’s a notebook, a lab, and a showcase.
My Journey to Design
I started out developing Windows applications. Then I developed web applications.
Then I went into user experience design because I realized I liked thinking about what to build rather than how to build it.
Now, my primary role is to conduct user research, design, and prototype interactions. I work simultaneously on a number of different projects, all while within the same work organization.
While I still do developer-like things on occasion, it is to serve the needs of user research and interaction design.
While I am not actively seeking employment opportunities at this time, here is my résumé if you want to discuss opportunities for work pertaining to high-impact UX.
My topics of interest include design, human-computer interaction, communication (especially visual and symbolic), collaboration, creativity, graphic and print design, visual analytics, urban design, last-mile transportation, cognitive and behavioral psychology, photography, economics, and sociology.
Other interests and endeavors include being a dad, husband, photographer, mechanical keyboard enthusiast, crafter and user of sketchbooks, web tech tinkerer, podcast and audiobook consumer, reader, and a practicing member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
