I am a creator.
I am a visual and logical person.
I am curious about lots of things.
I am interested in how and why things work.
I pay attention to detail.
I also believe ideas are the beginning of creation and the combination of science and art is the best solution for a perfect creation.
Who am I?
I am Caroline Gan Wen Shen a Senior Interaction Designer with 13 years' experience in the UK’s leading design agencies, who was born and bred in Shanghai, and now living in London.
I started working at Zentropy Partners (now MRM McCann) in 2003. After 8 years' of tears of joy, I decided to go travel around world and started freelancing.

Between 2017-2019, I completed Textile workshops, Fashion trend forecasting, Cool hunting fashion and Fashion buying short courses at Central Saint Martins UAL. I then established a successful online business sunnyrivermouth.co.uk in 2019, selling curated design products for family fun.
Now it's 2020, I am ready, ready for new challenges in life.
I hold an MA in Design for Interactive Media and BA (hons) in Visual Communication.
I speak Chinese (Mandarin) and English fluently, Japanese (JLPT 4 level) and a little French.
I am a permanent UK resident and I do not require a work permit.
What do I do?
I create interfaces for websites, apps and banners. I design logos. I draw illustrations. I do animation and I draw user interaction wireframes.
