Young ju Cho.

Hello, my name is Young Ju Cho and I am from South Korea. 

I am a Visual and UX/UI designer, currently working at Grinnell Mutual. I graduated from Iowa State University (ISU) with the degree of Master of Fine Arts in graphic design, as well as a certificate in Human Computer Interaction (HCI).

While studying at ISU and working at Grinnell Mutual as a designer, I had a lot of opportunities to work with great people and expand my knowledge and skills. I tried to create an easy and intuitive way to use digital products and solve problems by understanding of users. I learned that design is a creative activity, but it is not about the designer’s need for self-expression. In order to successfully provide user's needs, I believe that a designer should have empathy with their users, and I have seen how good design can be created with that idea in mind. 

When I’m not designing, I like to bike, listen to classical music and spend time with my family.
