Hi, I’m Wendy

wendy zhou

I’m passionate about futuristic aesthetics, as well as personal development. The topics I write about are UX, UI, and visual design, futuristic products, fashion, personal development, philosophy, career, and how it’s going with my own projects.

My interest in digital design began early. I’ve always loved to draw, paint, and write. When I was 15 I began learning web design, digital marketing, and discovered cyberpunk as an aesthetic. I then started creating my own websites and worked as a UX/UI designer for a few years, as well as opening my own online shops to sell my own products. And it has all been really fun. Currently, I’m freelancing as a UX/UI/Visual designer and write articles on my various websites (such as this blog). I’m mostly self-taught in the work I do, but I have continued to explore my interest with a degree in cognitive science as well as other university studies in journalism, psychology, design, and philosophy. Naturally, one of my biggest hobbies is reading and self-studying new subjects.

I write to inspire, help, and teach what I know. As well as connect with people who share my interests.

Apart from this blog, you can also find me:

  • Uploading design tutorials on YouTube
  • Posting about design projects and thoughts on Instagram and Dribbble
  • Running my small e-commerce brand (Noty & Co.), where I design and sell my own digital printables, planners, and stickers

Hobbies and other things I love

I also of course have other interests apart from working (even though I’m currently able to work with what I love).

The thing I value most above everything else is spending time with the people I love and creating new memories together.

Apart from that, I also really enjoy electronic music (techno, house, trap, lo-fi), reading books, traveling, and practicing yoga & meditation. I also may have a mild obsession with collecting fountain pens and beautiful inks (and notebooks), as well as painting, practicing classical calligraphy, journaling (a lot), and investing (FIRE movement!).

Hey, by the way! I’m always open and looking for new friendships! It can be hard sometimes to find people that share my interests. So, if you’re someone who’s interested in the same things as I am, and would like to talk, don’t hesitate to send me a message whenever! I try to check my Instagram frequently (and my email of course).

Say hi!
