Hello, I'm Rosie Zhang

Product Designer based in Toronto, Canada.


My Journey to UX

Coming from an architecture background, I have always asked myself the question - “What is good design?”. While innovative forms and fancy drawings have their place, I was mostly fascinated about understanding how users interact with designs and creating enjoyable and meaningful experiences for them.

It was during my time at Columbia University that I took a course in interaction design, which introduced me to human-centered design methodologies and sparked my deep interest in the field. This led me to pursue a master's degree in User Experience Design at the University of Toronto from 2019 to 2021.

Since entering the field of UX, I am grateful for the opportunities I have had to work on exciting projects that address intriguing user problems and deliver exceptional value. I've led the redesign of Hudson's Bay's search experience; experimented AR beauty through rapid pretotyping; and contributed to building Tangerine's design system from scratch.

Beyond my professional pursuits, I find joy in design as a creative practice and often bend my head in activities like folding paper origami or painting during my free time.
