Hello, I'm Daouna Jeong (pronounced as Down-Ah), a UX/UI designer originally from South Korea, currently based in NYC.

I am particularly interested in understanding and applying human behavior to the field of interaction design. With an academic background in visual design, I began my career as a graphic user interface designer at a small game development company. I quickly developed a passion for interaction design, user research and the psychology behind UX design decisions. 

In the past 6 years, I was the lead UX/UI designer at FreshPlanet, a start-up based in New York City, where I helped developing SongPop, a music trivia app that attracted more than 100 millions users around the world and has been featured on the App Store and Google Play Store. I'm now seeking my next adventures.

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, hiking, making icons for the Noun Project, collaborating on side projects like Gem 6 and Meriwether, and learning new design skills and tools to stay sharp.
