Hi there! I’m a Toy Designer based in Los Angeles (USA), graduating from Otis College of Art and Design in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Toy Design. I have developed my professional background through a design internship. I am experienced in all aspects of toy production, including brainstorming, sketching, rendering, choosing the fabric for plush toys, display showroom, and shooting photographs. Additionally, I am highly experienced in the Adobe pipeline (After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator) as well as Rhino and Zbrush. I never stop searching for new styles and new forms to expand my design skills. I design toys to bring joy and comfort to children as young Youjin did. I hope my toys can be the best friends of our little friends for a long time.

Bubble Pop Girls is a girl's toy line that comes with four adorable dolls and a fantastical bubble playset. Who's age four and up can play with it. Inspired by nature and season, I designed this toy line. Four characters represent each season and have one ingredient each, which are needs to make bubbles. Let's collect all four dolls and create your own colorful bubbles with Bubble Pop Girls. Also, Make a wish upon a Magical Wish Flower and make your wishes come true.
