Hi, I am Tianhao He, you can also call me Clyde :)
As a Digital Product Designer, I believe in creating cohesive ecosystems for physical and digital products. Design thinking allows me to develop experiences that work together while still being viable and practical. With a diverse skill set, including graphic design, storytelling, motion design, and technology, I always approach problems with a broad scope. I love the details, the micro-interactions, that allow my users to feel deeply considered. Through design, I want to craft delightful and inspiring experiences for everyone.
I'm currently a Product Designer at TikTok working on New Formats and Photo Mode. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Interaction Design from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, and in the past I also interned at ByteDance and contributed to the design and globalization of Lark.
In my free time, I have collaborated with startups and agencies including Poparazzi, Hypercard and Interactivism to create exciting products and motion design projects. I also did a lot of fun side projects which you can check out here.
Since my younger age, I have always been a passionate tech nerd who enjoys tinkering, coding, and evaluating products. Over time, I realized that I was more interested in how a design decision in the product could fundamentally influence the users and how different parts or products together can even alter people's daily experiences and lives. My curiosity expanded beyond technology and products themselves into the design fields.
I enjoy taking random photos! My current go-to setup is Fujifilm X-H2S and lenses including 56mm f1.2, 16mm f1.4, and 16-55mm f2.8. Here are some of the photos that I'm most proud of, and you can also find the others on Unsplash.
Emerging technology always intrigues me, and I always enjoy trying out new tech products and assembling customized stuff like PC and mechanical keyboards!
For me, video games are the best way to do interactive art and storytelling. Hit me on Steam or other platforms if you found me ;)
