UI Design

How has Topcoder changed your life?

Before joining Topcoder, I was a civil engineer. And now I spend all my time doing UI design.

Do you have a favorite Topcoder customer or project? If so, which customer or project?

I love every project that I competed, so it is very hard to tell who is my favorite customer. If I have to choose, my favorite customer is Dinnaco, John Hancock.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you within the Topcoder community?

Win a trip to USA and this is the first time as TCO17 UI finalist.

Tell us about an achievement that you are most proud of.

Being among the top 3 designers in stage 3.

Best music album to design to?

Songs of inspiration – ALABAMA

What books do you recommend?

Who is your favorite copilot and why (and you can't pick yourself!)?

Mahestro (Luis Milan) – he always supports me when I need it.

Do you have a favorite designer/artist or other inspiration?

Bui Xuan Phai – He was one of the most remarkable, most charming and most unusual figures of Vietnamese modern art.

As a designer, what is your biggest pet peeve?

Snooze alarm sound.

What are the top 3 applications that you use when you design?

Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and sometime Autocad as I am a civil engineer.

If you could design one world - renown item such as the Olympics logo, a new country flag, or redo a massive brand logo such as Coca Cola, what would you want to design and why?

As a designer, I want to design as many fields as I can. Designing a world-renown item is also my big dream.
