PHILIP HAN

I am driven to create desirable futures. 

It is my belief that creators bear the responsibility to respect all living things and their ecosystems - be it cultural, financial, or environmental. Our actions, and the actions we don't take, have impact. 

My design process revolves around human-centered design thinking methodologies, focusing on understanding the larger context behind problems before considering potential solutions. Collaboration is a central tenet of my iteration and testing.

My passions include: 
Exploring the world and its wonders 
Creating art and experimental designs 
Wandering via bike or hike
