Recently I read an article posted by Khai Seng Hong Founder & Director at Studio Dojo on Linkedin “A Snapshot of the UX/UI Design Community in Singapore”. It really inspired me to create a Hong Kong version 🇭🇰.

Here’s the list of the groups, podcasts, programmes and events that I know which relates to UX design in Hong Kong:

The Interaction Design Association (IxDA) is a non-profit professional organization whose focus is promoting both the field of interaction design and the interests of an international community of practitioners, managers, educators, and students of interaction design.

Passionate UXers in Hong Kong


  • Perviously I have worked at a company that has an internal study group.
    I really like that idea and really enjoyed taking parts in the study group because it creates space for people to share their ideas, inspire each other, continuous learning and think outside the box.
  • There are many great contents/ topics like blog, talk, podcast etc. out there but I feel that having some kind of peer discussion and having space for UXers to share local content causally will be great too.

That’s the background story of Colearnla — a casual peers collaborative learning community for UXers to grow together in Hong Kong. …

Due to the pandemic, I had more them to read blog post, podcast, book and online courses.

I came across the podcast Forever Employable — Jeff Gothelf on The Product Experience by chance and got asked “ Where do you see yourself in one year?” at a job interview.

I thought instead of predicted what might happen next year, it could be interesting to wrote a self-reflective post. As a Product UX Designers in working with a small startup team. Here’s what I wish I knew a year ago:

As a UX/UI Designer, I am always interested in projects or tasks that are thinking beyond just the products and services I am working on. What if I can help with designing better workspace experience for the team.

Few months ago, I was given a challenge to redesign the sprint retrospective format so that it is suitable for a remote work environment for a team of 6.

It has been a very iterative, collaborative and fun design process working closely with the team (See the collaboration). …

Problem with password — Simple passwords are hacker friendly, complicated passwords are not user friendly because users will forget their password etc.

Recently I heard about FIDO2, a passwordless web authentication method. As a UX Designer, I am curious to understand more about Passwordless ( FIDO2) in the following areas:

  1. What is FIDO2?
  2. User review. What do different tech level (i.e. non-tech, semi-tech and tech) think about FIDO2? (coming soon…)
  3. What are the challenges designing and adopting for FIDO2? (coming soon…)


  • According to FIDO alliance each users have more than 90 online accounts.
  • of online purchases are abandoned due to forgotten passwords
  • What if we don’t need password to access our accounts? Time to think beyond passwords.
