I’m Trong, a digital product designer based in Singapore. Currently, I’m working as a Product Designer at Carousell focusing on Property, Car, Home Services, and building out Carousell’s design system.
I spent five years in a tech university to learn software engineering, but I soon realized design is my passion. I hated coding, but my gut told me to finish the engineering diploma while learning to design in my free time. And when I met the UX term, my engineering background became an important foundation in my career.
One of the greatest things about being a designer with an engineering background is that not only I can take care of the looks of a product, but can also fully understand, participate and even take care of the technical aspects of those projects.
I believe design and engineering go hand in hand toward creating amazing things.
