Hi, I'm Sarah Tan

Born and raised in Malaysia, studied design in Melbourne, and currently working as a designer in Sydney, previously designed digital experiences at Google, CommBank and ustwo. I worked with international clients such as Google, NASA, Facebook, Adobe, Royal Opera House, Red Bull, Bunnings, Woolworths, Bailey Nelson, Bens & Jerry and more.


I identify myself as a multidisciplinary designer with skills mainly in product design, augmented reality, graphic design and illustration. I'm inspired to make designs that spark happiness, inspire new ways to experiment, initiate dialogues, and bring a positive impact!

While I am not working, I love sharing my experiences or frameworks through writing articles in Medium, spending hours in a cafe doodling with a good cup of coffee, going for walks, running my business Happy Ever Alter, and doing random coding projects like this!
