My name is Ian Liao. My understanding of product design began as a teenager, while my father was battling cancer. Not being able to sit up straight, I would try to help him drink water without choking. A seemingly simple task became a challenge and I started thinking about how I could create designs that would make an impact on people’s lives. My desire and determination for helping others has only grown. I love solving problems and coming up with new concepts. I want to find that click, that magic moment, where I can see the possibilities and opportunities for smarter design. A well-designed product not only elevates form and function, but connects on much deeper level.
