Tong Wu (Ivy)
My name is Ivy Wu, an international student from China, studied at University of Kansas for 5 years with 4 years in design department. My first major in KU is bio-pharmacy but after one year studied and experienced many classes in other major, I found I was interested in industrial design more and transferred major to design department. I had never been trained in design, art, even painting and my family and friends didn't optimistic about my study of design, but I persisted till now. During 4 years professional studied in KU, I make sure my purpose of studying design is to bring people a better and more beautiful life, to make products functional and decorative at the same time. My favorite designer is Saito Oki, a Japanese designer who is good at adding a tiny but creative element to an existing product to achieve incredible results and solve the inconvenience of using this product. After graduating from KU, I plan to go to London to study for master degree in Interactive Design and my application is already in progress.
