Hi, I'm Michelle Chiu.

A product designer based in NYC.
Currently at MongoDB. Previously frog design, Wish, BuzzFeed, Apple, & Microsoft.

I graduated from Georgia Tech in 2018 with a degree in Computational Media and minor in Industrial Design. My interdisciplinary skillset is bred from my fascination of the arts and my former background in software engineering. I find happiness in learning new things, explaining the six internships I’ve had since the age of 17 with companies across varying industries.


Aside from design, my passion also lies in photography. In college, my work was featured in a mobile gallery truck where all profits were donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank. To date, they've garnered 10k+ downloads on Unsplash. I also enjoy writing blog posts for early designers on Medium, earning a Top Writer milestone for my pieces that've been viewed by over 55k people.

When I’m not designing or taking photos, I like to thrift for vintage goods, spend afternoons in museums, attend boxing classes, and attend music festivals. Very memorably, I was recently caked by Steve Aoki at a concert in Brooklyn.

Find me on Instagram, LinkedIn, or Twitter. You can also send me a good old-fashioned email.
