Hi, I'm Sarah Tan!

I am a designer specialising in Product Design and AR/VR based in Melbourne, Australia. I previously designed digital experiences for Google, NASA, Facebook, Adobe, Mastercard, and more. I am passionate about creating meaningful and ethical user experiences as she believes that design is a powerful tool of influence. Currently, I am a Product Designer at Atlassian.

I am passionate about pushing innovation in the immersive industry. My love for immersive tech started when I was working at Google under their innovation department (Google Creative Lab). This led me to find my passion in experimenting and pushing the design boundaries of AR/VR. My AR/VR work has been featured in Adobe, 7NEWS, 9NEWS, ABC, The Australian, SBS Australia, B&T, and more. I have spoken at conferences such as VR/AR Global Summit, conduct AR/VR Workshops for universities, internal company events, and startups.

Outside of work, I love sharing my experiences and creating frameworks through writing articles in Medium. Apart from that, I enjoy spending hours in a cafe doodling with a good cup of coffee, spending time drawing in VR, and doing random coding projects like this!
