Nice to meet u :)

Hi there,

Hey, I'm Zhaolu (Sounds like "Jaolou"😉), I am a research-driven UX designer at UK National Innovation Centre for Ageing, focusing on simplifying complex information systems into inclusive human-centric experiences. 


Previously, I worked as a UX Designer at Sky, focusing on designing Sky Glass TV interfaces, where I improved the user experience of Sky Glass TV onboarding journey and account management for over 500k subscribers.


Prior to that, I completed my MA in User Experience Design at University of the Arts London, where developed my curiosity to explore future possibilities through design and where I completed my final design project FlexiKit to support museums to be more inclusive and accessible for all. I pursued a Bachelor of Architecture degree at Hunan University, an experience that cultivated within me a profound empathy for individuals and sparked my fascination with user-centred design.

All my journeys have led me to who I am now: A human-centred designer with strong empathy and a keen interest in how design can better shape the future.
