Hoon Vince Yoon

Hoon Yoon, aka Vince is a designer who has been experiencing diverse areas of Industrial, Product, UI/UX, and interaction design. From grad school to business field, he has been proceeding projects integrating with emerging technologies like interactive product/artifact/system that combines with augmented interface.

In talking about his significant strength, he has an ability and experiences to distill the practical usability from converging

different fields like finding solutions between industrial design-based ergonomics and UX-based methodology.

For grad thesis, he did a project about how augmented GUI interplays with exterior environments. Based on user-centric

methodology and analysis he designed several types of interface models integrating with physical artifacts, for prototyping how augmented GUI could be permeated into our actual life.

 Grad Thesis: Interplayable Surface

- An exploration on Augmented GUI that coexists with physical environments

Main Thesis Advisor, Graduate Program Director: Andy Law

Adjunct Thesis Advisor: Tim Maly

External Thesis Advisor: Jaemin Cho

The goal of experiment-driven thesis is to envision and design an interactive GUI (graphic user interface) that coexists with physical surfaces. Based on an understanding of user behavioral patterns for accessing information in types of situations, experimentations and prototypes are implemented and tested with participants. Through the process of understanding User-factors for accessing information within situational specificity, thesis suggests several types of speculative user-scenarios for how augmented GUI could be permeated into actual life, combining with UX-centric points.

Participated the project as an ethnography researcher and a design developer. To develop the

proper artifact to elders in need of flexible maneuvering of walker, we speculatively designed

and proposed the concept of flexible walker that allows them to conveniently stretch its joints

depending on certain situation.
