Communicate Emotions
Hi there! My name is Ellie Kexin Lin. I'm an  interaction designer and product prototyper based in Mountain View.

I'm currently focusing on the design and prototyping of an AR platform of TikTok, Effect House. Feel free to try it out!

9 Years of Design
I was trained as an architect. I won 3 national scholarship in my undergrad, including one that took me to Milan, Italy as an exchange student, and one sponsored me to travel and do research in eastern Europe and finished the writing of my first book To Every Age Its Art -- Modernization Exploration of Regionalism in Architecture under the Influence of Secession.

I've been actively studying, practicing and contributing to the world of design since 9 years ago, and I will continue my exploration.
Creative Coding
I graduated from NYU ITP (Interactive Telecommunications Program), where I gained hands-on experience in designing, developing, and building AR programs, interactive installations and interconnected systems. I've proudly had the opportunities to work closely with industry professionals as well as new media artists over the years, helping them from a design, branding, and technology perspective.

@el_touchdesigner on Instagram is where I post my generative graphics practices made in TouchDesigner and Houdini, implemented with Blender, Substance Designer, AfterEffects, and other programs. You can find shader programming, FBX/PBR experiments, sound/data viz, motion graphics and much more there.
