About

😁 Hi friends, I am Guea, a product design lead at Rakuten overseeing the engagement vertical within the product org. Previous to Rakuten, I had the opportunity to build and implement a design system across multiple products at GoodRx and Facebook (now Meta). I lead design initiatives with solid business insights and retain strong domain knowledge within the business sector. I also have vast experience shipping complex end-to-end features that serve multiple teams' needs. I enjoy facilitating design thinking workshops to guide product partners and teams onto clear paths. I advocate for designers being equal thought partners to product counterparts by staying curious, aware, and ready to problem solve.

If you are new to product design, I can help you with the following:
• Break into the field as a designer
• Career shifting 
• Portfolio and interview prepping
• Product thinking and product shaping
• Establishing frames works to help you succeed in your new role
• Building rapport with teams and counterparts
• Develop a plan to advance both hard skills and soft skills

If you are looking to become a senior/lead designer, I can help you with the following:
• Communicating user needs to stakeholders
• Establish and build upon product lifecycle frameworks to be easily adaptable within workplaces. 
• How to design a complex end-to-end feature that serves the needs of multiple teams.
• Facilitate design thinking workshops to drive user and business-product thinking and guide partners onto clear paths.
• Make difficult trade-offs in return for a holistic product scope with feasible solutions.
• Designing scalable products that can be built and improved iteratively.
• Leverage user research insights to reduce product gaps to achieve broader organizational goals. 
• How to work within ambiguity and communicate upward
