Hi! I'm Yitong, a designer in San Francisco. I grew up in Montreal, Canada – a very cold place my family moved to when I was young. Immigration is a big part of my story. You can listen to me talk about it on Design Details. I currently work on Vector DAO, a collective of web3 designers and engineers. Before that, I spent almost four years at Coinbase, where I've had the priviledge of designing and redesigning much of the consumer app, as well as establishing the design system.
In my spare time, I work on a bunch of side projects like Autoflow, a marketing page pattern library called Goodweb.design, a collection of GPT3 prompts, and this vegetable seasonality website. Most of these could really use a bit of maintenance. Oh and I also tend to a beautiful vegetable garden.
