Di Xu

I'm a product designer who focuses on user experience and research. Creating with purpose excites me. As a child, I learned the impact of art through my family’s heritage in ceramics arts. I grew up in a region of China with equal parts Mandarin and Cantonese speakers, and was an international student in both the United States and the Netherlands. I saw how design transcends language and solve real life problems. When not immersing myself in design, I enjoy biking, skateboarding, dancing, hiking, painting, and drawing cat cartoons.
