Gary Lim Chang Hwee

Gary’s interest lies in experience and service design. With users at the centre of all processes, he often acts as an integrator of disciplines, finding the balance across all stakeholders. He doesn’t have a fixed design philosophy. However, he believes that a good design process will most certainly yield a valuable outcome. To him, the ability to plug and play one’s skills is crucial.
