Hi. I’m Yoomi, nice to meet you. I am a UI / UX / Visual Designer and have been for 15+ years. After a decade in New York City, I moved to the west coast last year to be a little closer to my family… in Japan. West Hollywood is now my home.
I am currently a Creative Director / Creative Producer with a NY-based company called Syntax + Motion. If you are an influencer or a thought-leader or anyone who wants to boost your online presence, let me know, I can hook you up.
I can pretty much do anything but my main line of specialty is UI/UX (web/application design) – I am well versed in print/graphic design and have extensive experience in both. In fact, if it’s digital media-related, I’m pretty sure that I’ve been involved. If I’m not hands-on involved, I’ve either managed it or at minimum, studied it. I know a little bit of everything – but a whole lot more of the design and creative stuff.
I’m not going to create a silly chart to show you the application I know how to use because it’s silly. But I am fluent in the following applications: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Omnigraffle, Sketch, InVision, WordPress, WooCommerce, LeadPages, AWeber, Mailchimp and many, many more.
I believe that design should always lead a product – a successful digital product is an integration of a product vision, crafted user-stories and compelling designs that is painless and optimized for user experience. I am a Creative Director with UI/UX discipline.
I am a Creative Producer. I lead and nurture ideations, do not miss deadlines, balance budgets, pivot when necessary and guide teams. I enjoy interfacing with clients, empathize their needs and can manage expectations. I can manage teams, understand their pain-points, and know when to push and pull back. I have been a resource, a client, a vendor – I speak the languages and know how to liaise.
I am a leader. I am agile and strive in challenges. I am resourceful yet curious. I am responsible and own my words. I didn’t skip any steps to get to where I am today. I am well-rounded, influential and experienced.
