Kim Jin Sun previously worked as a web designer for seven years at NCSoft in Japan, and has now been working as a LINE UI Designer for five years.
She always wanted to know more in detail about development materials first. She learned about the limitations and opportunities that came with designing using such materials, how to complete a design to make it better, how quickly and smoothly cooperative work with development departments can be made and that all these are crucial in the overall process.
As she was transferred from a web designer to the mobile field, she studied Xcode and Android Studio. That is how she became aware.
She recognized the best tools and advantages of realizing development tools, layouts, and visuals.
Before using these development tools as how she is doing now, she began by using them as prototyping tools for large and complex apps that could not be handled by other prototyping tools that had their own shortcomings, and began to use development tools as an essential part of her design work.
