ANN NGO: RESEARCHER BY DESIGN & VICE VERSA
MEANING OF “RESEARCHER BY DESIGN”
I am a person who finds comfort in information and context, especially when it sheds light on how we behave as humans. Though we are all beings who are uniquely different, I love to discover quirks and common values or needs that bond us together. Understanding the world around us takes patience, observation and insight, and I am on a continual quest to learn and capture evidence with my camera.
VICE VERSA: “DESIGN BY RESEARCHER”
Though I am a researcher at heart, when I can translate what I’ve absorbed into meaningful design for humans or spark the imaginations of others, that is my nirvana. Using visual stories as my medium, I synthesize consumer trends and human-centric considerations into design inspiration. My arsenal includes graphic design, infographics and interactive media.
I enjoy the beauty of nature and try to get outdoors as much as I can. I am happy whether it is a fast pace on my motorcycle or a slower pace by foot to take in the details. I am also interested in people-watching, since humans are fascinating! I want to hone my photography skills further and continue to keep up-to-date on creative illustration techniques.
My ideal vocation would be one in which I can contribute to the harmony between the earth and humankind. As a Californian who enjoys all its natural riches responsibly, I feel we can’t deprive our future generations. I thrive off of leadership from visionary “do-ers” with similar values.
Personal Motto: Inspire. Experiment. Innovate.
