Hey, I’m

Ran Tian

UX/UI  .   Motion  .   3D  .  Coding

I’ve been working at cool companies like 1stDibs, Sotheby’s, Baidu, Microsoft, and Lenovo for over 12 years. Luckily, even at the large tech giants, the working environments have mirrored that of a startup. These experiences pushed me to learn fast, become a design lead, take on new challenges, and ultimately become a “full-stack” designer.

From 2016 to 2018, I gapped 2 years to study at NYU’s ITP program where my focus was on interactive technologies. Here I got to explore interactive coding, AR/VR, and 3D animations.
