HELLO

My name is Hung Nguyen and I’m a UX/UI Designer who is currently based out of Toronto, Canada.

I started my career as a visual designer but over the years, I have transitioned to a user experience role. Throughout my design journey, I have learned that in order to create a successful product, all aspects of UX has to be acknowledged, respected and embraced.

I’m always one to stay humble at my craft and never one to back down from a challenge but also understand the importance of failure - because without it, we are unable to learn.
