Jeff Lin

Hi! I'm Jeff Lin, an interactive designer based in New York City. I am currently Senior UX Designer at Huemen Design / Harman International. My passions and inspirations derive from a wide range of subjects both inside and outside of the creative industry. Previously, I have worked at Marvel Entertainment, Smart Vision Labs, The Daily (News Corporation), Converseon, and Thumbplay (Acquired by iHeartMedia).

When I'm not immersed in design (when am I not?!), I'm out shooting photos. Follow me on Instagram!

I also help curate Cyberpunk Cities, an instagram account that features cyberpunk style artwork/photos.

Wanna chat? I'm always looking to connect with fellow talented people in the industry - throw me a line — jeff [[at]] jeffstyle.com or send me a message and add me on LinkedIn.
