I am Olivia Hu, a San-Francisco-based
designer and photographer.

I graduated with my MS from NYU in 2017 and moved to the Bay Area to learn about improving lives through the intersection of design and technology. Let me tell you a bit about myself so you can hire me!

I'm a designer first. I create visual communication and user-centered interfaces. I'm interested in products that encourage community interaction and/or promote positive outcomes for its users. View selected work.

    Fun Facts
  • 4 years ago I injured my hand so I can’t draw, but that helped me become an expert with the pen tool to do my own illustrations.
  • I like to code and prefer to prototype with it because it's faster. I especially love to build my own projects (like this one).

I tell stories as a photographer by capturing my local San Franciscan life. I also photograph non-profit tech events for women to make lasting connections and give back to my community in a way meaningful to me. View my albums.

    The Backstage
  • Photography is my off-the-computer exercise in framing design and playing with colors.
  • I never really plan my photos and take them on-the-go with my iPhone.

In my free time, I write a blog because I also want to connect with superwomen (and men if they blog ;] ) outside my community. I keep my blog personal because I want my readers to feel that I am here to talk to. Read about my life.

    Writing Goals
  • My blog is the only place I talk about how video games inspire my design. Read #AgithaHimeDiaries!
  • Other segments include my travels to Asia #TakingOverAsia and my purple hair #VioletPride.

Let's chat! I'm available for freelance visual/UI projects, or part-time collaborations. For photography work: I won't charge non-profits that benefit women; for all other requests please contact me for my rate.

I'm very active on social media so let's connect!
