Expert UI Designer

Nic Cheung

Hello! I’m Nic, an Expert Designer and Assistant Manager at Shopee’s Singapore Design Team. My focus is on designing the company’s SaaS/Enterprise products and consumer-related products.

Since graduating with an art major in 2000, I spent 11 years working in the gaming industry in China before venturing to Singapore for a new chapter. Over the next 9 years, I delved into and mastered new aspects of SaaS product design in Singapore. I took on responsibilities that included managing small teams, overseeing projects, and training new technical talent. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my journey in the vast realm of user interface design!

My Skills & Gears

I specialize in Enterprise ToB product design, with extensive product experience spanning over 60 products in areas such as human resources, development, cloud services, machine learning, finance, and internal systems. I will continue to focus on Singapore’s large enterprises and SaaS-related product domains.

I pursue the concept of ultimate simplicity and user-friendliness in UI design. I have created the “double-layer induction method” to simplify complex systems into an intuitive user experience flow, reducing the difficulty for users.

Over the long term, I have been dedicated to creating design systems, such as AntD, and utilizing Figma’s official Autolayout+Property+self-made plugins to develop powerful and user-friendly design systems that enhance team efficiency.

In the future, I will continue to explore the vast realms of user experience and UI design.

The value I can provide for you

IIf I join your team, I will offer you high-quality SaaS product design support, encompassing the following aspects:

  • 01 • Ultimate simplicity UI/UX
  • 02 • Assetization & tooling
  • 03 • Fun, joyful design

01 • Ultimate Simplicity UI/UX Hierarchy

When a product is launched, it must meet functional, psychological, and aesthetic standards. Effective design prioritizes utility and eliminates distractions.

Exceptional UI design demands a clear structure, a focus on user experience, uniqueness, consistency, and simplicity. While it sounds simple, it’s challenging in practice. My experience with over 60 live projects supports my ability to tackle these challenges.

Having specialized in enterprise mid-tier projects for an extended period, I’ve organized user-friendly modular components to expedite project development. Embracing a modular approach, I’ve also developed a rapid design platform with Figma plugins to enhance team efficiency.

02 • Assetization & Tooling 

When a product is release to be used. It has to satisfy not only functional, but also psychological and aesthetic criteria. Good design emphasizes the usefulness of a product whilst disregarding anything that could detract from it.

A good UI design must ensure a clear structure, focus on user experience, unique, unified, and concise under the premise of ensuring aesthetics. Sounds easy, right? It’s not easy to do it. Even if you can absorb and ensure that the early design ideas are correct, there may be many unexpected things when you put them into practice. The process from idea to implementation is the real test of personal ability.

After a long-term accumulation of work on enterprise middle-end projects, I have sorted out a lot of convenient module components, combined with a lot of small whimsy, so that enterprise middle-end projects can be built quickly. Based on the idea of modular construction, in addition, It also made a quick building platform Pagemaker, as well as related plug-ins, table Builder, etc., which greatly improved the production efficiency.

03 • Fun, Joyful Design!

A product is made for practical use. It must meet not only functional but also psychological and aesthetic standards. Good design highlights a product’s utility while ignoring anything that could detract from it.

Design can be a means to understand and express human emotions, tapping into human feelings to create colorful, enjoyable, and engaging experiences. Designers advocate for freedom, have a deep love for nature, and possess rich emotions. When human-centric content is integrated into a product, it adds a touch of humanity, vitality, and personalization, making the product more unique and vibrant.

Inspired by Everyday Life

Design inspiration can only be gradually acquired through daily observations and an understanding of beauty. Creating beauty can be learned from appreciating the beauty in the real world.

On the right is a close-up shot of our Galaxis office building, a scene we see every day. I appreciate it from a photographer’s perspective and discover its unique rhythm, which provides me with special inspiration, such as for the design of databases and table controls.
