I'm Yuan

I'm a senior product designer at Twitter, leading the experience design of Tweet format and conversations. Previously, I spent 2 years designing for onboarding & growth at Twitter.

Prior to joining Twitter, I led the experience design of Firefox for Android and Windows 8 at Mozilla, and studied human-computer interaction at Carnegie Mellon University.

I enjoy bringing creative ideas to life through strong empathy, systematic thinking and collaborative execution. I focus on building cross-team relationships, improving team culture and communications.

Besides design, I spend lots of time painting and crafting.  My art studio "Ink+Water" features a series of ink paintings inspired by Chinese classical poetry. My work was invited to a global group exhibit "Enter Into Art" in Cologne, Germany in 2017.

In addition, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 rescued kitties, salsa dancing, and urban gardening in the always chilly SF.
