1993- 2000 Special Art class

2003-2007 Chung Yuang Christian University Major: physics

2007-2009 EC Desifn School Major: product Design

We had trained art skill eight hours each week and we learned traditional Chinese painting, calligraphy, painting in watercolors, engraving, sculpture, sewing, graphic design, prepare exhibition etc. The talent of art is a gift from my parents and I had won many drawing competition since then.

The reason why I spent four years in physics is that my dream is to be a scientist. I admire many scientists like Yuan Tseh Lee, Richard Phillips Feynman, and Michael Faraday. They all have the same qualification---to search to the root of reality.

This school provides a great variety of resources for students who want to study design abroad. Using design strategy to figure out the need of users is a great way to create new stuff. During the class, we discussed and kept brainstorming in order to find a better method to solve problems.

I learned expert physics and math curriculum. Furthermore, graduated thesis helps me to integrate all the ability I had learned in college.

I also learn 2D and 3D software to express my concept as close to reality as possible. The best part was that I could draw illustrations from my mind onto paper to communicate and share my thoughts with people.

Analyze TARGET MARKET

NEED OF CLIENT

City bicycle for family

Surprise

City bike is more and more popular recently. But, those bikes are design for single. If someone have a kid and he or she want to rent a city bike, there is no seat for his or her children.

Children are curious and full of energy. They are easy tired of doing the same thing or experiences. They need something which can caught their eye.

INNOVATIVE OF FEATURE This bike is designed for KID who want to find fun and interesting with parents when they are riding bicycle. This kind of new-designed bicycle that creates an interesting interaction between parents and children are never seen on the market before. Through this special design, it is interesting while the children can taste the joy of riding a horse while riding a bicycle with the parent.

material saddle: silica gel tube: aluminum alloy

The second structure is much better than the first one. I also design a box under the saddle of an adult. You can put your stuff inside.


CLAY MODELING Giving three-dimensional form to idea.

The ratio of clay model to reality bike is 5:1. This pratical experience is real help me to image the real shape.

prepare

The kid saddle is the most special part.

Focus on smooth and comfortable shap. Draw lines to get better face.

The face is almost ideal.
