Designing and shipping products for the future of emerging technology
John Ma is a digital product designer with 3+ years of design and shipping experiences (AI, AR/VR, data analytics SaaS softwares, 3D animations) with a background in front end programming (dabbed in 3js and basic HTML/CSS). I love to bring users problems from conception to functional high fidelity prototypes while driving design decisions in the intersection of well balanced user needs and business goals.
Fascinated in tackling and building components for scalable design systems. Obsessed with pixel perfect UIs. Loved breaking down ambiguous problems into smaller segments. Energized by collaborating with people from different domains.
Currently designing and prototyping the future of holographic office @Spatial. Previously took the initiative to design, prototype and launch Scan Features, Lens Collections and Premium Lenses @Snap, created web dashboards and deployed behavioral assessment PDFs in sandbox environment using curl command @Yobs, rebranded hand tracking and haptics website @Ultraleap. Also spent some time designing motion graphics for LA Hacks and mobile application for StudySmart.
Scoped and redesigned the foundation and visual system for a better experience for Scale's IDE for machine learning, from improving the usability of powerful autotag feature to analyzing long tail of the dataset through similarity search.
