Design Website, Service, Thinking

MAN PING CHEN

For me, inspiration is like the dots flowing in the background, I get inspired from the world and design everything from websites, thinking to real life! I am a highly-motivated designer who has passions for developing visual, translating visual to websites by hand-coding and practising design thinking in real life. Not only a professional website designer but a problem solver and design thinker, I enjoy in nonlinear experiences which keep pushing the design boundary to work and life.

Design thinking in my Life

For me, design thinking is closely related to our daily life which means we can use it to solve the problems we face in our life, even if it is a domestic affair. The stories are my practice of design thinking in my life.

About Me

I never thought that I would be obsessed with website design. I have worked as a website designer for six years, every time I translate a visual to a website, I feel that it is like magic. With the passion of designing websites, I started my online studio from 2012 and had worked in publishing, travel, media and advertising industries to engage in multiple applications of design. Throughout the years, I became a senior designer proficient in designing websites and hand-coding such as HTML, CSS, SASS and jQuery plugins.

As an experiencer, I keep learning from the world, connecting different ideas and doing something new, for example, experimentally run facebook fan pages to observe, share and see what happens. Also, reflecting on my previous work, I came to London for learning service and innovative design in Goldsmiths. For me, as designers and citizens of the world, we have responsibility for our work. Design with empathy can make positive impacts, which not only delivers messages but also creates emotional connections and loyalty. In this year, I am going to experiment as much as I can to explore the new design methods solving problems.

Testimonies

As a employed designer

'During my 18 months of working with Man-Ping, I saw a young lady who actively built up experiences and abilities in preparation for the future. Within a short period time, she proved that her passion and persistent self-discipline could exceed those of people with seniority.'

Paul HungExecutive Creative Director, Wunderman Taiwan

As a freelance designer

'Manping gave us suggestions from different perspectives in a timely manner. Instead of thinking from the perspective of a designer, some of her suggestions were based on the thoughts of Internet users or readers. Her works were always beyond my imagination and very impressive.'
