Ying-Jen (Emily) Chen’s Portfolio

Take the key to open the door The logo consists of three letters - YJC, which are Ying-Jen(Emily) Chen’s initials. Burgundy is my favorite color to represent my personality. My personality is like red wine, the taste is more than you thought it would be at first. The green indicates that I always keep a fresh mind in a creative way.

Meaning of Logo

The shape of the logo is a key, which is a metaphor for Ying-Jen (Emily) Chen, a key person to open doors.

Design Management Content

Bio I came from Taiwan, a friendly and lovely island in Eastern Asia. My background was in Industrial Design. I worked as an industrial designer and project leader for five years in Taiwan and China in baby product field. Later, I went back to school to pursue master degrees, then I earned both Design Management and Industrial Design MA degrees at SCAD in June, 2012. My goal is to work as a project manager in which position I can fully utilize the work experience and knowledge I possess.

Everyone should examine their role of life at the stages in which they are at.

Many women are less adept and less interested in using basic hand tools than their male counterparts. They were not encouraged to play with tools or educated how to use tools during their childhood development. This project aims to empower women through increasing their confidence, education, and interest in tools by creating a new ergonomical, comfortable, and welldesigned tool kit for women which is sold in untraditional tool outlets such as Macy’s, Target, and Publix.

Secondary Research Women’s Shopping Behavior Objective

Mission: go to Gap, buy a pair of pants Female

Our objective is not just creating or designing a new tool set for women, but to develop a quality set of tools that encourages women to recognize the importance of having and using tools. Our project is about the social issues related with women’s behavior with tools. We plan to address this through researching / observing women’s behaviors, preferences, and the bigger philosophies of women’s fear with tools. We plan to create a new market and empower women to use and purchase our tools as they will be pleased that they have them when they need them. We will research current trends with women’s tools, tools in general, and understand the ergonomics of tools.

“ How do you deal with your baby when you want to take a shower, cooking, or chore? Parents usually can’t leave their baby alone for a log time when they want to do something. The idea of “Safungo” is to create a home stroller, parents can bring their baby with them all the time. “Safungo” means Safe, Fun, and Go, baby always stay in safe environment, have fun with itself, and stay with parents all the time. The appearance inspiration of “Safungo” is mom’s belly because I want to create secure feeling when baby was in mom’s belly.

The umbrella strollers in the current market are heavy and hard to fold, and users need to use their feet to fold the strollers which sometimes hurts their toes. The design of G-Lite changed the structure of umbrella stroller to reduce its weight. Also, G-Lite changed the fold operation from using feet to that of hands so that users can hold their baby in one hand and use the other hand to fold the baby stroller. Today, G-Lite is the lightest(8.3lb) umbrella stroller in the US market.
