Hi, I'm Tzu-Hsien.
I am interested in observing and analyzing human relationships with physical objects they choose to obtain.
As a product designer, I strive to create visually appealing objects that are also functional and filled with intriguing stories.
In my opinion, a well-designed product should serve not only a functional purpose but also reflect some level of personality about its users. I have always been drawn to products that people are willing to pay more for their creative value and good interacting experience. Thus, I always pay closer attention to those details to ensure my creations have a good story behind them.
