UX Designer, Artist and Coder
My name is Ilwon Yoon and I live in Brooklyn, New York. I recently graduated from NYU ITP where I learned how to leverage ideas into projects that could impact on the world. Formerly trained as an artist, my main interest has been placed on mobile/web technologies and how they keep reshaping the way we communicate.
My personal obsession with this topic has lead me to create various ranges of works from interactive installation to mobile applications. Most of my works are aiming to enrich communication among people to create a vibrant communities with the use of mobile/web technologies.
For now, I spend most of my time working on a few new projects , Shhhh and Stuff Swap. And the project shhhh was reviewed and featured on many other tech magazines in many other countries.
I am currently developing this application from prototype to a real iOS application while swiftly learning iOS development.
Here are a few links to the articles of the shhhh project.
