Hi, I'm Irene Guo

I'm a Product Designer from Kansas City! I'm currently studying Cognitive Science and Design at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). 


This past summer, I was a Civic Digital Fellow and interned as a UX Design fellow for the Internal Revenue Service. This summer, I'll be interning at the start-up Open Raven, and will also be Kleiner Perkins Design fellow :)

Why Product Design?

When I came to college, I struggled with finding the right career path for me. I found design halfway through and was fascinated with the positive impacts of human-centered design. I've always been interested in analyzing human behavior and dissecting the reasoning behind their actions.

My ultimate goal as a designer is to use design to drive sustainable behaviors and good habits, and apply my skills to create beneficial transformations. I also aspire to be a holistic designer who can master problem-solving in the face of constraints.
