✋🏼Hi there ! I am Mayu,
a UX Designer / Researcher based in sunny Brisbane
Welcome to my sushi train, very nice meeting you 🍥
Birthday Colour / #6b76ae : Salvia Blue ( 17.07.1992 )
I'm originally from Neon City - Tokyo Japan.
In early 2014, I shook up my courage to come to a land where I didn't know anyone and could barely speak English. Although the experience strengthened my core to expand life experience in different cultures and more importantly, I'm no longer afraid of challenging myself.
I'm still introverted and shy, a typical Japanese.
However, as an experience designer, I passionately approach details of human & environmental factors to bring solutions to life because we all deserve a better life tomorrow, and I can be the generator for it!
MY DESIGN PRINCIPLE
O m o t e n a s h i
"Omotenashi" is the Japanese 'Spirit of Hospitality' to enhance the customer experience and go beyond their expectations by proving unspoken demands.
Human-centric means that user comes top priority and that's what defines Omotenashi. I apply my "Omotenashi Design Principle" to always remember to center users in the process, not just to meet their demands but investigate what's uncovered.
In a digital world, Omotenashi inspired me for connecting all the elements of human life between the environments and products to design a bridge that harmonizes with each segment of the user journey.
Consider sustainable development for future business growth and pursue a new opportunity with never-ending curiosity.
