Jane Li, UI Design Professional Program Student
Jane has had a lifelong fascination with art & design. A graduate from the Bachelor’s of Animation program, Jane has worked in the field for the past 2 years.
Jane’s love for animation and communicating ideas through design is visually evident through her video.
The psychology behind UI Design, being aware of who the content is being created for, is what Jane finds is its most interesting attribute.
She is excited to learn more at RED Academy Toronto, to understand how design affects daily life and how design can speak to different people.
