Hi, there! I’m Vivian Ngai, a curiosity-driven UX designer currently based in Toronto, Canada. I’m currently an Interaction Designer at CampBrain and am involved around the tech community in Toronto, particularly around civic tech and advocacy for diversity and inclusion.
I come with an interdisciplinary background in social research, marketing, and design. I was drawn to UX because it’s a perfect combination of bridging critical thinking and empathy. I take a holistic and critical approach. I see UX as a powerful vehicle for social change, inclusivity, and for more compassionate technology.
I’ve completed an immersive Diploma program in UX Design. I also hold an M.A., and B.A. in sociology, psychology and marketing. I’ve worked in academia, market research, a social enterprise start-up, and started my own business collaborating with other change-making entrepreneurs as a graphic and web (WordPress) designer over at byVivian. My varied background and multiple passions allow me to bring in diverse perspectives and the ability to adapt, see the big picture, and bring it all together.
I’m an INFJ, and in addition to design, am interested in personal development, social justice/equity/inclusiveness, travel, good food, raw chocolate, mental health, and hanging in hammocks. Make your own magic.
