Chih-Chun Lin UX Designer at Bittrex.com “I was extremely lucky to have Edmund as a design manager during my time at Bittrex. Edmund has been an awesome mentor and talented designer. His vast knowledge of crypto and design significantly impacts product strategy and exerts a subtle and profound influence on the value that UX could bring. I've always been impressed by how thoughtful he was in making every design decision, and on top of that, it is always well articulated, easy to understand, and such a rewarding experience in every design discussion. Edmund also creates a safe and supportive environment that helped grow my design skills and build my confidence as a designer. He is genuine in character and takes care of the people he works with.”
Muthu Arunachalam Senior Director of Product Management at GlobalScholar “Edmund is one of the best UI/UX designers I have worked with. His ability to grab the core piece and get into details, quick turnaround time for the design, coming up with a design and improvising on it continuously, abreast with the latest trends in the industry and getting them into the product at the right time are some of the skills I admire in him. The user experience of our product has improved because of him to a large extent.”
Nehal Raval Lead Program Manager at GlobalScholar “Edmund... Alias 'The best man in the UI/UX world.' Worked with him for various projects and found he is one of the best coworker I have worked with. Humble, team-player, hard-working, sharp, out of the box thoughts, result-oriented. It is my pleasure to work with him.”
Abhishek Shukla Product Manager at GlobalScholar “I had multiple opportunities to work with Edmund and was always impressed by his depth of knowledge in UX design. He always keeps product usability and product vision at the top of his mind. Without his contributions, I would have missed a number of differentiating factors in my product features. His innovative solutions have helped me in maintaining the right balance between feature functionality and usability. With his knowledge and experience, Edmund has a very bright future.”
