Hey there!

I'm Yurou, a product designer based in New York (but hailing from Guam) with a love for typography and user experience design. I graduated from NYU studying Integrated Digital Media (a mouthful, I know) with a concentration in visual design and educational technology. Designing for accessibility and inclusivity is at the heart of everything I do, and as cheesy as it may sound, I want to use design as a means of making the digital world easier to navigate, beautiful and available for all.

When I'm not scribbling away in my notebook or messing around on Sketch, I'm probably binge watching Netflix documentaries, playing Animal Crossing, or looking up bad puns for my comedic side hustle.

Currently a Product Designer at MongoDB. I was previously a Product Designer at NYU IT and a Design Intern at Marine Lane. I've also done design work for TwiceAberdeen, & Well Read Black Girl.

You can't see it but I'm wearing SPAM earrings
What I've been up to most days
The beautiful island I grew up on
Now I'm a city girl (tbt when I saw snow for the first time)

If you're interested in what I'm working on, would like to talk design, or want to chat about the counterfeit makeup epidemic, links on your right (or below if on mobile) would be your best bet.
