Hello I am Yeji Han!
I am a Senior at Savannah College of Art and Design ( SCAD ). I am majoring in User Experience Design with minors in Service Design and Graphic Design. My expected graduation is May 2022.
I am currently a Student Ambassador for SCAD, Vice President of SCADLIT (Leaders of Inclusive Thinking), and an Officer for the SCAD Service Design Club.
SO WHAT IS THIS GLOBE SUPPOSED TO BE?
The globe you see here represents Pangea which is a hypothetical landmass that existed when all continents were joined millions of years ago. Like how Pangea joined the different continents together, I hope to be a designer that is able to bridge people around the world and bring forth design solutions that are impactful to all.

Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character known for being a mastermind detective. Particularly what makes him a successful detective I believe comes from being an observant, empathetic, and persistent personality.
I bring those characteristics when it comes to design. Although empathy is definitely important, I am a strong believer to look beyond that and into the context of the users. Finding that root problem and creating relevant solutions is something I always aim towards when I design.
When it comes to new opportunities I would like to say that I embody a Tree-like personality. With my projects Lighthouse and the Service Design Challenge 2021, there were definitely moments where I could have taken the easy path out.
However, like a tree, I am persistent and make sure any design decision I make is backed by reliable research. I am not scared to ask difficult questions especially when it comes to advocating for users' voices.
Understanding different user point of view is a skillset I value to have. My exposure to different cultures allows me to approach or empathize with users in a broader context. Asking the What if? Questions and ensuring ethical design are what I always aspire to have.
The website domain eloiseyeji.info is inspired by the book character Eloise, from Eloise at the Plaza. Although Eloise is known for her chaotic nature, the deep roots of her personality stem from her overwhelming curiosity. Like her, I am a curious person. I am always seeking new learning opportunities and am always excited to do so.
I have experience in various unconventional sports such as Kayaking, Horseback riding, Figure Staking, and Fencing. I know how to play the piano and am a self-taught guitar player :)
I graduate this June 2022 and am currently looking for full-time job opportunities. I hope to be in a place where positive value exchange can be made. I hope to grow and learn a lot as well as bring my unique perspectives and skills to bring impact.
In the end, ultimately I hope to be at a level where I can be an inspiration for young aspiring designers in the future.
Any questions? Curiosities?
