Evi K. Hui
Evi K. Hui is an experience designer at Adaptive Path. Her journey into design began with a ball of clay in one hand and fabric in the other; as a child she made ceramics and soft goods which led her to study industrial design at OCAD University. Through UX focused classes, internships, and an exchange program at the Glasgow School of Art, Evi discovered service design which allowed her to think more holistically about crafting people's experiences and designing the end-to-end journey. After graduation, Evi worked on the Insights & Strategy team at Smart Design before making her way to the West Coast.
Now living in San Francisco, she can be found making ceramics, crafting leather goods, climbing, cooking and exploring the outdoors on her bicycle and two feet.
