Gen Hur is an Interaction Design student and UX Designer passionate about designing products and moments that feel magical— that is, empowering, surprising and delightful. She hopes to design products and services that help people rediscover their agency and sense of wonder.


On her free time, she likes to draw, write depressing short stories, and watch funny animal videos. She hopes you’ll overlook the fact that she wrote her bio in the third person, and would be excited to get in touch with you someday.
