June Hong


Hi, there!

Thanks for swinging by. My name is June (Yoon Jung) Hong.

For more than 10 years, I have been working on tons of consumer facing web and mobile projects as a project manager, marketing consultant, and UX/UI designer leading cross‐functional teams of designers and engineers and as a part of international project teams. ( see the list of projects ) Exposure to many projects in diverse environments made me more versatile and flexible, and different role and responsibilities like a marketing and business consultant, taught me a lot about how to manage relationship with people from different backgrounds. More importantly, running my own business and studying at a business school I learned how to drive business result with great products. 

My current focus is setting strategy for new products, implementing user research and market analysis, and prototyping and usability testing for social eCommerce apps and deal related sites. As a solo UX designer at a fast-moving startup, I am working on several different projects at once - coupon, fashion, and flash sale. Every day is full of excitements and learning because social shopping is one of the hottest areas, where new startups with interesting ideas and creative solutions come out everyday. Yes, it is challenging, but I love working in competitive, fast-pacing industry and feel more rewarding when with my contribution the company is getting great business results. 

The psychology of shopping, habit-forming product development (including gamification), social media strategy, and lean startup and lean ux practices are my main concentrations and try to look for good resources and books to enhance my knowledge and skills everyday.

As a lifetime student and explorer, I determined to stay humble but not afraid of taking bold steps and seek for learning from everybody at every moment everywhere.
