Hi, I'm Sarah Tan

Sarah Tan is an award-winning designer specialising in UX/UI design, graphic design and illustration based in Melbourne. She previously designed digital experiences for Google, NASA, Facebook, Adobe and CommBank. She is passionate about creating meaningful and ethical user experiences as she believes that design is a powerful tool of influence. Currently, she is a Product Designer at REA Group working on Australia's largest property tech products - realestate.com.au.

At the side, she is passionate about pushing innovation in the immersive industry. Her love for immersive tech started when she was working at Google in Sydney under their innovation department. This led her to find her passion in experimenting and pushing the boundaries of AR/VR. In the AR space, she has created frameworks for companies to follow, host solo AR art exhibitions and featured on 7NEWS for her AR project.

Outside of work, she loves giving talks and workshops to inspire other designers. She also loves sharing her experiences and creating frameworks through writing articles in Medium. Apart from that, she enjoys spending hours in a cafe doodling with a good cup of coffee, running her business Happy Ever Alter, and doing random coding projects like this!
