Philosophy

Web design is a craft that merges visual aesthetics, user experience, and creativity into one. To create, an artist has to develop a wide range of interests. By having an understanding of various subjects, the artist will be able meld different practices, experiences, and cultures into a design that's truly innovative.

I always strive to create something new, while remain under the discipline of final business goals; it is critical to find the balance between the two. I enjoy building high quality, detailed websites, knowing that it will remain usable a decade down the road.

[fountain.jenyuan.com] is a Tumblr blog I started in 2012. The blog has over 40k followers, but I don't spend much time running it anymore. Now, it serves as my inspiration board, at times I use it to promote artists and creators. Feel free to hit me up if you have work that's in need of promotion

Allen, who contacted me in 2013 after I reblogged a photo from his first ever photo shoot became a great friend of mine. A year later I met him in Syracuse, NY, and together, we founded Qual Agency. Here's a picture of the first night we met.

Ne.Sense

[ne-sense.com], Ne.Sense is a fashion retailer operating both at its space and online shop. Beyond it's core of fashion retailing, Ne.Sense frequently ventures into the blurred lines of art, design, and fashion.

It started in 2013, when the founder of Ne.Sense, Steve (who was my math tutor in high school) spoked to me about the new born company, exactly when I started my web design career. In 2013 - 2016, I worked remote and on-site at times due to my travels. In late 2016, I started working full time on it's website designs, maintenance, and ecommerce marketing.

Kkkat這因該是你看過最dope的一封情書
剛到紐約 來到這是我小時候的夢想
覺得生命很不可思議 想達成的事情都不經意的漸漸的被完成. 也很幸運能遇到你 讓我更了解了自己

今天紐約有秋天的感覺 讓我想起我們去年在台大的夜晚 我很懷念在星亥路的日子 跟你一起看星星 吃草莓蛋糕 做晚餐 軟禁你.
這世界很大, 很多東西我不了解, 很多夢想我還在追逐, 我的內心還有很多小房間等待著我去發掘, 我想你也是.

我們都開始了一個新的生活 很多事情都不是我們能掌控的 對抗命運最好的方式 就是變成最dope的自己. 不管新生活是好是壞 都要認真得欣賞他 當你回頭去看得時候 只有好的回憶會被留下.

對於未來 我們試著去計劃 追逐 找算命師 但是這都是很模糊的 我們的未來會怎麼樣 - only one way to find out.
