ABOUT ME

My name is Yu-Cheng Yang and I am a multidisciplinary designer based in Chicago, IL. Currently I serve as the lead industrial designer at CurvGroup / KeySmart, where I work directly with the CEO and the Director of Product to oversee the entire product development process from concept to production - all have help grown the company to generate over $15 million per year in just 4 years.

​My skill set covers a wide range of product design disciplines - from early concept development to the full execution of product manufacturing and retail-ready. I am specialized in concept development, design / product visualization, and packaging design.

I earned my Bachelor's degree in Industrial Design from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Outside work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching movies, and volunteering at local humanitarian organizations.
