Ziyu Fang

Ziyu Fang. A versatile service designer. For several years, I worked as a private equity fund manager, where I gained valuable experience in the financial industry. During my tenure, I was involved in various trading activities, including A-shares, options, futures, and the U.S. stock market.


However, the outbreak of the pandemic had a profound impact on me. It made me realize the importance of making a positive difference in society and contributing to the well-being of the general public. This realization inspired me to pursue a career where I could continue designing with a focus on human happiness.


During my studies, I acquired skills in UI and UX design. Combining these skills with my years of experience in finance, I possess a unique perspective on understanding users. In the field of service design, I have explored diverse topics, such as public safety design, personal health design, design for the mother and baby population, and the care of individuals reintegrating into society after incarceration. These projects have allowed me to broaden my understanding and expertise in designing for various user needs.


Looking ahead, my goal is to integrate my rich life experiences into my design work. By drawing upon my background in finance and my passion for enhancing human well-being, I aim to create designs that not only meet users' expectations but also make a positive impact on their lives.


Thank you for your attention, and I look forward to embarking on this exciting journey of design with all of you.
